A loan of $975 helped a member buy bundles of quality clothing and cosmetics.


Las Sonrientes Group's story

This dedicated group is made up of four hardworking members coordinated by Sra. Tanya. She is 25 years old, successful, and single. She earns her living selling Avon cosmetics and secondhand clothing, a business she started five years ago with a loan from her mother. Now she wishes to continue growing the business so she is seeking a loan to buy bundles of quality clothing, and other items such as hair cream, body lotion, perfume, lipstick etc. With her previous loan María managed to increase sales.

24-year old Betty is another member of the group. She has been selling costume jewelry for two years in the community. 42-year old Xiomara has been selling cosmetics for seventeen years from her home and in nearby neighborhoods. 23-year old Nohelia also sells cosmetics, jewelry, and clothing around her community, a business she started more than a year ago.

In this group: Xiomara Del Socorro, Nohelia Walkiria , Tanya Azucena, Betty De Los Ángeles
