Ejemplo A Seguir 5 Group's story

Carmen is the coordinator of her group, Ejemplo a Seguir ("Example to follow") 5. Her group is located in the urban slums surrounding Santiago, an area known for its tobacco production, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable.

Carmen makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business which is a bookstore. She will use this loan to increase her business inventory buying books, notebooks, colored pencils and other items. She will use the profit to reinvest in her business. Carmen is excited to be taking her third loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid a previous loan and grown her business. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Carmen, Liliana, Melissa, Jemy, Lourdes
