San Cayetano Group's story

The communal bank "San Cayetano” was formed by various neighbors from the city of Santaní. All of the members of the communal bank have independent businesses, but they also do activities that foster their friendships. Isabel is the president of the communal bank, and she tells us that she really wants to be able to get ahead through the Foundation's program for entrepreneurial women. Isabel makes her living raising and selling animals such as cattle, pigs, goats etc. And thanks to this work, she is able to help her family and meet their daily needs. Her family never wants for anything. Isabel is requesting the loan to purchase feed for her animals, as she doesn't want them to go without. The feed is a very important supply for her. Isabel is grateful for the opportunity she has been given with the loan; it will be a great help to her.
