Marangatu Group's story

The communal bank called "Marangatu" is in its fourth lending cycle with the women's committee program. All of the women strive for a better quality of life for their loved ones so they will want for nothing.

Señora Mirian is one of the communal bank members. She earns her living selling clothing in the area. She has a variety of customers from her area and the surrounding areas. Mirian is an enterprising person who works hard for loved ones so that they will want for nothing. She is grateful for the opportunity she is receiving to be able to keep working and give her family the best.

Mirian is requesting this loan so she can purchase a variety of garments, such as jeans, tops, pants, blouses, shorts and other items. The purchase will allow her to keep up with her customers, like always.
