A loan of $1,850 helped a member operating capital.


Guapuru Group's story

Ana represents the 'Guaparú' group. Two of the group members, Ericka and Mireya are related (sisters), but each of them is economically independent and they are completely independent from each other. For the most part, the members sell products such as candy, paint, bread, clothing, and household supplies and offer house painting. In the marketplace there is always competition, but these members have no problem succeeding because of their experience. This loan will be used to increase the products and materials they have for sale, and to get more ingredients for making bread. Some members of the group have not worked with village banking groups before, but they are very responsible and committed to their partners so that everyone can come out ahead.

In this group: Ana, Jimmy, Maria, Margarita, Maria, Sonia, Rosa, Esther, Consuelo, Ericka, Mireya, Patricia, Bilmania
