Emanuel Group's story

Hello. We are the EMANUEL Group, located in the Los Arcos neighborhood in the city of Danli. We know each other very well, and have always worked together. We are very united, as if we were related.

The group is comprised as follows:

Juan Elias G.. I am the coordinator of my group. My principal activity is passenger transportation (Taxi #81), and I have many years of experience with this type of occupation. I am married, and have a daughter in primary school. Thanks to the income which I receive from my taxi service, I can support my family’s household expenses. Currently, I need to buy some parts to repair my vehicle given that it is my only means of work.

Norma Iris C.: she is a merchant who dedicates herself to selling common household goods. She has a small grocery store which is located in her house. This is an activity which she has conducted for three years, and which provides the income to pay for her family’s living expenses. She has three children, two of whom are still in school – one in secondary school and one at the university.

Karla Suyapa T.: She is dedicated to the sale of chicharrones and chicharras (pork rinds) which she sells at the municipal market. She is married and has two children ages two and four.

Currently, we all need an infusion of capital to invest in our enterprises. This is the reason we are soliciting a loan, so we can get ahead with our expenses and concurrently improve our standard of living.

In this group: Juan Elias, Norma Iris, Karla Suyapa
