Emmanuel Group's story

This group is made up of four hardworking businesswomen. The group coordinator is Heisell. She is twenty-six years old, is married, and has one son who is 14 months old; he is her motivation for moving herself forward, since she wants to be able to offer him a better life. She owns a sewing workshop, and has been running this business for the past six years out of her home. With the previous loans, she has been able to grow her business. For this reason, she is requesting a new loan. She would like to grow the production of her business by investing in the purchase of cloth, wool, synthetic material, thread, buttons, elastic bands, etc. With her past loans, she was able to grow her business by also buying small appliances.

The other members in the group are Carmen, Antonia, and Marling. Carmen is twenty-two years old and has made a living buying and selling fruit for two years in the Masaya market; her portion of the loan will permit her to buy melons. Antonia is fifty-three years old and has worked for five years in the local market buying and selling fruits and vegetables; she will use her portion of the loan to buy melon and squash. Marling is twenty-one years old and has four years of experience buying and selling harvest crops in the local market.
