Since 1996, ENLACE (through sister organization CREDATEC) has helped to start or expand over 1,000 small businesses by providing credit and training to micro-entrepreneurs. We believe that financial coaching is just as important as the actual loan and emphasize its importance to our members. The training and coaching is given to all of our diverse clients, from single mothers and small-scale merchants to pastors and even church leaders, and it is provided throughout the term of the loan. Entrepreneurs have found great success and the number of CREDATEC clients grows every year. Just this year, 23 new clients have been added to the list of hardworking entrepreneurs whose lives have been transformed through micro-loans in El Salvador.
