Ventura Group's story

Jose is 38 years old and he lives with his life partner and daughter, who depends economically on them both. Jose has run a small bread shop for the past 8 years. He learned this business when he was very young, and it allows him to generate income to help with his household responsibilities. But he wants to improve his home. For that reason he is asking for a loan in order to install a water tank. With this investment he hopes to improve the water storage in his home and thus offer his family a better quality of life. Jose, along with his communal banking partners Enerina and Griselda, form the communal banking group "Ventura" or Venture. They are entrepreneurial and supportive people who are looking for the same end which is to help their families get ahead.
