Desarrollo Comunitario Group's story

The group “Desarrollo Comunitario” (Community Development) is in its second loan cycle as part of the committee program. The members have taken a poverty elimination survey and the results indicated that six of them are below the poverty line. In other words, they must continue to strive in order to improve their living conditions.

One of the members is Sra. Maria. Her recent survey indicated that she was at a Level 2 poverty stage, which is to say that with continuous effort and work she will be able to reach an average income level. Maria sells cleaning products and is making the effort to improve her life and help her loved ones.

Maria is requesting a loan in order to buy cleaning products to sell. This will solidify her business plan, which will help to improve her earnings.
