This is the communal bank Azucenas Blancas. For the past 4 loan cycles they have shown a good payment behavior. Its members have different businesses such as furniture store, sale of fruits, clothing, cosmetics, and piñatas.

The member Marlene del Carmen (with green shirt and flowered skirt) is 32 years old, and she works in a carpentry along with her husband making chairs, beds, and closets.
