33 - Arocagua Group's story
The '33 AROCAGUA' communal bank consists of 8 members, six women and two men. They all live in the area of Arocagua, hence their group name. The President of the Board is Cintya, who lives in the family house with her mother in the Arocagua area. She does not have any children. Cintya is a good leader and was elected by her colleagues due to her solidarity and responsible nature. She manufactures signs for various institutions, restaurants, taxis, buses, etc. She has been doing this for 4 years. With the money from this loan, Cintya will purchase materials for the production of signs, such as paints. Through her work she is able to support herself and her family, including her parents and siblings. She is a hardworking person and she is very happy to be receiving this support which will help her improve the quality of life for her family. There are two men in the group, one is a taxi driver and the other has his own tableware business. The members are seeking a loan to invest in supplementing their businesses with more merchandise.
