A loan of $5,150 helped a member to buy charcoal.


Sensacion Group's story

Sensación Group is in its second loan cycle with the bank program. The group members are working with the poverty-elimination survey, which will help them be able to know in which areas of life they should try harder and persevere.

Ramona's a very modest person who sells charcoal. She said she has good customers because lately people prefer charcoal because it's cheap. It's worth pointing out that Ramona's getting ahead with a lot of sacrifice.

She's requesting this loan to buy more charcoal to sell. This will help her invest in her business plan as well as keep on improving her poverty level and, as a result, help her family.

In this group: Tomasa, Maria, Estela, Pablina, Rebeca, Liz, Lidia, Mirta, Cinthya, Agustina, Ramona, Cecilia, Roberta, Patricia, Nimia, Deysi, Marcia, Josefa
