A loan of $3,850 helped a member to buy rice, sugar and oil.

Trabajando Para El Futuro Group's story

This is the“Trabajando Para El Futuro” [Working for the Future] communal bank which is made up of seven enterprising and hard-working women who struggle every day to get ahead. Their sole purpose is to ensure the well-being of their families.

This is the case of Evelyn who is 24 years old and single and works as a secretary for a transportation company. She started more than three years ago and it has been going well for her. Her greatest desire is to lend support to her parents with their grocery store and this is why she has asked for a loan to buy rice, sugar, and oil.

The group "Trabajando Para El Futuro" thanks the people who made this loan possible. Evelyn is standing in the back and is the first one on the right with a sky-blue, long-sleeve shirt.
