Sonrisas De Exito Ym Group's story

The communal bank Sonrisas De Exito YM is made up of nine members. María Emma, on the right hand side in the long green jumper, is the president. On the left hand side is Abigail, in the jumper with zebra style stripes, who is the treasurer. In the centre is Elizabeth Rossemary, in the cherry coloured jumper with the handbag, who is the recording secretary.
María Emma is 23 years old and does not have children. From the age of 12 she started to work little by little at her business selling sweets which she has now built up to have her own fixed stall which she says is going well.
She says that thanks to God she is also able to carry out her studies in accountancy which helps her to move forwards with her sweet shop business. One of her goals is to become a professional and in truth she is already close to achieving her dream of being able to work in banking.
This loan is to increase her stall as she has quite a few customers.
