A loan of $650 helped working capital.


Filomena's story

Filomena has worked with the institution for three years, previously having obtained loans through an independent group. Regardless, upon needing greater capital than was available in the group, she moved forward on her own. She has a small neighborhood store and is very well-known in her area. She is married, her husband working in public transportation. Her children are now grown, each one on their own. Filomena will invest in the purchase of merchandise for her store such as rice, noodles, flour, sugar, sodas, and panettones (small bread loaves containing raisins and candied fruit) and chocolates for the holidays. She is a very punctual and responsible client.
