Flor De Canela I Group's story

The Communal Bank “Flor de Canela I” is part of the Villa Adela agency. This group consists of eight members and is led by a Board of Directors in which Sra. Carina is the president.

Carina is married and has three children. She has a business of selling fruit. Carina will use her loan to buy fruit in bulk that she will acquire from wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. She will then sell her products from her vending stall. Working in this manner will allow her to generate income to support her family. Her aspirations include expanding her business and helping her children become professionals.

Carina asks that the lenders continue to trust her Communal Bank group.
