A loan of $6,950 helped a member to buy women's clothes.

Banco Mujer Hacia El Futuro Group's story

Abigail is a member of the Banco Mujer Hacia el Futuro. She is a very young woman with great aspirations and a desire for self-improvement. She is 21 years old and single. She lives with her mother, and she is a merchant.

Several years ago she needed to help her mother and siblings to get ahead. That is when she started her small business. She sells women’s clothing in an itinerant manner in her community and outlying areas.

Also, Abigail studies in the evenings, and she is getting her high school degree for older students.

This is the third loan that she is requesting. She will use it to buy clothes to sell during this coming high season. The previous loans allowed her to consolidate her business and increase her customer base because she had more merchandise to offer.

Her goals for the future are to have a small store, to complete high school, and to be able to attend the university.

Nine other members join her in the group, and they are going to invest in their commercial and agricultural business activities.

In this group: Denia, Edith, Flor, Ana, Maria, Abigail, Katherine, Katia, Bernardita, Catia
