A loan helped to stock her meat & grocery business.

Bronce Group's story

The three members of our community bank, a man and two women--José Santana, Neysi and Marlene--live in the city of Bilwi. They started their group 8 months ago to access credit from Pana Pana for supporting their small businesses. They hope this means of borrowing will increase their incomes and, in turn, help them to better support their families. They call their group BRONCE ["Bronze"] because bronze is a precious metal and, like them, solid and strong. Our member, Marlene, 36, is married and has two children. She started her own grocery because she wanted an income of her own. Thanks to a Kiva loan, managed by PANA PANA, she was able to add meat sales to her grocery. She is applying for a new loan that she will use to stock her meat & grocery business with the merchandise that she needs to carry on the business. For the future, she hopes to add hardware sales.
