12 De Junio Group's story

The communal bank "12 de Junio" is in its 24th loan cycle with the Program of Women's Committees. They have set a goal of growth, not only financial, but also as people so that they can give their loved ones the best.

Lorenza, one of the members of this group, works very hard to help support her family. She has liguistic difficulties, because she has a cleft palate, which prevents her from communicating with people with spoken language. But this hasn't kept her from developing her creative abilities. She has a wood workshop where she makes beautiful handicrafts from wood. She sells these to tourists, and she also sells drinks.

The goal of this loan is to have capital to use to buy beverages. This way, she can have a greater variety of products to sell so that she can attract more customers.

Note: In the photo, you see only one person, but this is a group loan. It was not possible to take the group photo due to the need to avoid putting people in close proximity due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
