Arbol De Olivo Group's story

The bank Árbol de Olivo [Olive Tree] continues being represented by Maria Argelia. She works in agriculture along with her husband and her daughters, and this is how they maintain their household. Sometimes it is difficult, but they move forward. Occasionally the price of vegetables is very low, and that is where they lose profits. But they still continue striving with enthusiasm.

Maria Argelia now also has a business of selling daily consumption products, such as rice, beans, corn, snacks, and others. But she needs capital to invest. For that reason, she is once again requesting a loan to invest in order to have more sales.
