A loan of $775 helped to purchase fish, meat, and cold cuts.

Gabriela Noemí's story

In the Lodana parish in the city of Santa Ana, known for its gorgeous landscapes and beautiful, fresh water hot springs that attract many tourists, the members of Grupo de Credito Lodana meet every two weeks. Noemi lives in this area, and she's a 19 year old in a common-law marriage which has produced a 1 year old daughter. Her spouse is a businessman. Noemi is a very good wife who's requesting the loan so her spouse can use it for his business. He rents a location in the city of Santa Ana in which he sells all types of cold cuts, meats, and fish by the pound. She helps him with the job since sometimes there are many customers. For six months they have been working in this business and it gets better every day, since they now have more customers. This loan will be used to buy fish, meat, and cold cuts. She's been in the Grupo de Credito for the last two cycles and likes it because of the help she receives with loans. Her dream is to have a location of her own.
