A loan of $1,200 helped a member to buy packages of quality used clothing.


San Juaquin Group's story

The solidarity group is made up of three hardworking members and is coordinated by Santiago, who is 40 years old, married, and the father of two children, one of whom is dependent on him. He works in selling used clothing from his home. He requests a loan to increase his merchandise and to buy quality packages of shirts, shorts, pants, and dresses. With the loans, he has managed to improve his quality of life, since the loans have made it possible to expand his business, and also his income. The other members are Tania, 30 years old, who sells Nicaraguan tamales, tortillas and enchiladas in her home, and Damaris, 23 years old, who offers the service of making and selling tortillas and enchiladas in her home. The group has 19 loan cycles with this institution and has shown themselves to be supportive members.

In this group: Damaris Patricia , Tania Lisseth , Santiago Felipe
