Port- San Jacinto De Carcel Group's story

Pastora Lola is married and has 3 children. Her husband is a fisherman. She is a member of this communal bank, which includes 9 women and 3 men. They decided to get together and form this communal bank with the hope of bettering their businesses and their lives.

Pastora Lola is a woman who enjoys earning her own income and helping her husband with the household expenses. Like many people in her area, she has a business fabricating items by hand. She and her children have a brick factory (these bricks are used in the construction of homes). Her children work in the factory making bricks, while she is in charge of the sales to merchants who come to her business to buy. With this loan, Pastora Lola will buy raw materials to make bricks. Her dreams include having a truck to make deliveries of her bricks.

The woman who appears in the small photo is Johanna Monserrate, who arrived late because she was in a meeting.
