Cristo Vive Group's story

The members of the Cristo Vive (“Christ Lives”) cooperative bank live in the Guapurú neighborhood. There is a family relationship within the group: the A. family; they are sisters. They formed the group with the aim of attaining working capital. The members undertake various activities such as cosmetics sales, bread sales, general stores, and food sales. The male colleague in the group sells plastic goods. All members generate income on a daily basis. Insofar as the competition, suffice it to say that they are aware of it, and they comment that the loan assistance helps them improve the growth of their businesses greatly. The loan granted to them is destined to help them supply their stores (established businesses), for the merchants to take advantage of sales and to increase their merchandise supply. The members comment that they have had previous credit with other microfinance institutions.
