A loan of $2,075 helped a member operating capital.


San Francisco Group's story

The San Francisco community bank is represented by Sra. Irene. It's a new group that includes 12 members, most of whom have experience with community banking because they've been members of other groups before. There are new members, as well, and all of them want to work and get ahead. The members operate various businesses selling products such as empanadas, clothing, and cosmetics or providing services such as cleaning or public transportation. The loan will be used to start new businesses and to grow those that have already received capital, money that has been used to buy merchandise and supplies, work tools, for example, that help them to increase their incomes and, in turn, improve the lives of their families.

In this group: Irene, Jose, Inocenta Fernanda, Josefina, Bethy, Claudia Benita, Laura Yoana, Mariana Marisol*, Alexandra Denisse, Edmundo, Ana Carlita, Cleidy
