A loan of $2,625 helped a member to buy stock merchandise for her store.

Dias Felices Group's story

The “Días Felices” (Happy Days) communal bank has 8 members, six women and two men. The bank president is Flora, 62. She’s married and has three children who are all now independent adults; they are 33, 25 and 22 years old. She sells basic staple items in a neighborhood store located in the Santa Vera Cruz neighborhood.

This loan is her first sequence in the institution and she will use it to buy merchandise like groceries and soft-drinks to stock her store. Her reason for requesting the loan is to increase her working capital. The business challenge Flora faces is competition since there are many stores in her neighborhood but she always treats her customers with kindness and will use profits to continue stocking her store. She is grateful to the institution for the help provided.
