San Valentin Rb Group's story

The communal bank “San Valentin RB" is part of the San Miguel agency. It includes nine members, all of whom are friends and neighbors from the same area. It is run by a board of directors, of which Lezli Mabel is the president, Shirley is the treasurer, and Paola Ximena is the secretary.

Jhovana is married and has two children. She has had a business selling "salchipapas" [sausage and French fries] for one year.

She will invest the loan in her business, to buy a better-equipped "salchipapero" cart. In this way, she will help her children financially so that they will be able to get ahead; one of them already attends school. They are her motivation to continue making progress and to strive every day. Her dream and goal is for them to be professionals. She wants to have her own house and a fixed location to sell her "salchipapas". At present, she sets up where there is space in the door of the school.
