A loan of $1,125 helped a member to buy catalog products and items for the photocopier.


Solidaria Mujer Prosperidad Group's story

María Elena is 45 years old, a Nicaraguan woman, mother of three children who are students. She has a photocopy and internet store which is the only one in her area. It is very well visited the whole day. Her 23 year old son assists at the store and helps her by offering a very efficient quality service. She is requesting this loan to invest in maintaining the machines and buying materials to sell at the photocopy store. With this business she has been able to pay for her children's studies, consolidate her business, which has lately grown, and support her mother who is an older woman and still lives in Nicaragua. This is one of the reasons that motivates her to continue growing her business. She chose Fundacion Mujer because of the easiness with the paperwork and the help they offer before, during and after the loan.
