A loan of $2,100 helped a member to purchase plantains and butter for her business.

Gs Las Marianas Group's story

Ligia is an entrepreneurial woman who is dedicated to her business. She has sold fried slices of plantain for more than 7 years. She cooks in her home and her main customers are people who live in her neighborhood. She also supplies her products to many of the grocery stores in the Jacaleapa municipality.

Ligia has managed to obtain many customers who come to her home to consume her products and she is requesting the loan to purchase plantains and butter. Ligia's dream is to be able to purchase a plantain slicer.

She requests the loan as part of a group, which is comprised of the following people: Dina, who has baked pastries and sold cakes and bread for the past 10 years, José, who has sold new, American clothing and shoes for the past 9 years, and Marianela, who has sold cosmetics, creams, earrings, and American clothing for the past 15 years. They formed the group to strengthen their friendship and communication.
