Patacon B Group's story

The Patacon B communal bank is part of the Jatun Sonqo agency. This is made up of eight members who all know each other. It is led by a board of directors with Maria as the president.

Maria is 49 years old. She is single and has a daughter. She currently has a business selling wooden furniture. She notes that her father makes the furniture from wood, like tables, chairs, and wardrobes, and she sells them from her stall.

The loan she will now take out is for increasing her capital by buying merchandise (tables, chairs and wardrobes). The business she has is her way of working which allows her to generate income for financially sustaining her family. Her goals are to continue making her business grow to have greater profits. Maria’s dreams are to have her own home and to see her daughter as a professional. Maria ask that you trust her communal bank.
