A loan of $2,150 helped a member working capital.


San Martin Group's story

The " San Martín " group, represented by Mrs. Inés, has 13 members. This includes two sisters - Mrs. Maria Delcy and Mrs. Dica Patricia - but they are both married and each of their incomes is independent from the other's. The group's members run a variety of businesses, driving taxis or selling products like clothing, meals, cosmetics, crafts, and sauces.There is a high demand for these products but there is also a large number of people selling them, so customers are naturally inclined to purchase only those products that are of the best quality and that are being sold at the lowest price. This is why the group's members are requesting this loan, so that they have the working capital needed to offer the best products at the lowest price and thus, increase their incomes and their families' quality of life. Some of the group's members have a lot of experience with communal banking and for others this is their first loan, but they feel capable, as a group and as clients of the Agrocapital Foundation, of making their payments punctually and taking advantage of the great opportunities this loan will bring.

In this group: Ines, Pedro Luis, Daniela, Yanet, Liliana*, Roxana, Justina, Guicela, Maria Teresa, Dica Patricia, Jenny Magdalena, Maria Delcy, Aleida
