A loan of $2,300 helped a member working capital.

San Pedro Y Pablo Group's story

The 'San Pedro y Pablo' group is represented by Yolanda, and is maD. up of 13 members, the majority of whom work selling products such as food, cosmetics, glass and clothing. Other members work in public transport, laundry services, panel-beating and hair-dressing. Within the sphere of commercial goods and services there is a lot of competition, but the members depend greatly on their earnings to move ahead, and use their experience and human qualities to not allow the competition to win.

This loan will be used to buy supplies and materials, and to repair their work tools so they are able to offer quality products and services. The members already have experience working in solidarity groups, through their earlier participation in organizations similar to Fundacion Agrocapital. They have the knowledge to manage and administer their funds as well as the responsibility to fulfil their obligations.

In this group: Yolanda, Lizeth Ivana, Florencia, Maria Tereza, Luciano, Ercilia, Jhonny, Angela Patricia, Ana Karen, Virginia, Carmen, Mariela Brigida, Paula Mirielle
