Ametauna Group's story

The Ametauno bank continues to to work together. The previous loan was used to buy merchandise and raw materials, to pay for services and to improve their work place environments. Their payments were punctual because they planned their sales well. Right now, the the bank is led by Rosmary. She is a 61 year old woman who lives with her spouse, They have grown children and her business is selling candies.

She is stable, friendly and very hardworking. She runs her business in the southern part of the city, characterized by contributing most of the manufacturing and for having most of the population.

Rosmary has dark skin, short, black hair, and a robust figure. She is seated in the middle, wearing an animal print shirt. Her mother tongue is Guarani, which she speaks in her family, and she uses Spanish. She shares her life with her husband, who works as an electrician. Her children are grown and have their own families. She lives in her own house, which is built from wood and has potable water, electricity, and plumbing. Her business is selling candies. She has a small snack bar in her house where she offers candies and some other snacks, such as cookies and gum. Her business is close to a school, where most of her customers come from. They know her as ‘grandmother' and the children are always playing in her doorway while they buy her candies. It is a pretty place, shaded by an enormous tree that protects from the terrible heat. “My children come every day to cheer me for awhile, and I always tell them to brush their teeth…” she remarks. Her business is successful because it is in her house close to the school. The disadvantage of her business is that it lacks a freezer to keep ice creams to sell. Her dream is to expand her snack bar. She wants to buy a freezer to store ice cream. This is her second loan cycle with the institution in the 10 years she has been running this business.

These are the reasons that Rosmary is asking for a loan to buy a freezer to keep ice cream for the children.
