A loan of $2,700 helped a member to buy raw materials to make food to sell.

Koeju Group's story

Koeju grew up in the rural city of Santaní, which is still in development and where all the people work hard to be able to provide for their families and help the community.

One of the entrepreneurs who took the initiative to start with the women’s committee is Celina. She sells food in a small kiosk which she has in her house. When sales are slow there, she takes her food onto the streets to sell, so that she can meet her daily targets. With this work, she is able to help her family in their day to day life.

She is asking for a loan to buy raw material to make her meals, which she will later sell. All the members are grateful for the help they are receiving.
