Retail is a quick and scalable way to begin earning a profit. Many entrepreneurs begin with stalls at markets or even at home and need a loan to expand or increase their inventory. Others may be ready to open a small store. Goods purchased from loan funds range from clothing, grocery or sundry items to jewelry, candy, perfume or health and beauty supplies. Loans in the commerce sector account for around 33% of our loans.
Residents of the community of Cuajinicuilapa are primarily a mix of native Mexicans and Africans, who originally arrived with the Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes. The region’s close proximity to the coast enables residents to participate in a wide range of economic activities, including commerce, agriculture, and fishing.
