A loan of $2,625 helped a member to invest in working capital and stock her business with rice, beans, sugar milk, bread, eggs, detergent, and oil.

G.s. La Bendicion De Dios Achuapa Group's story

The “G.S. la Bendición de Dios Achuapa” communal bank is comprised of five responsible mothers, with ten children under their care. They are from Achuapa, located in the region’s northern zone. They are known as being hard working and responsible women who desire to improve themselves. Regrettably, the member didn’t have the financial resources to study for a degree, and was forced to work from an early age to help with the household expenses. Now, she strives daily to provide her children with a better future.

Thanks to her efforts and desire to get ahead, the leader, Lidia, has a general store business. It is a small store where she sells groceries such as rice, beans, sugar milk, bread, eggs, detergent, and oil in small quantities. She works twelve hours a day, selling her products. The purpose of the loan is to invest in working capital and purchase products to stock her business, and then sell the groceries so that, in the near future, she can earn higher income.
