Juan Bautista Group's story

The "Juan Bautista" ("John the Baptist") group is represented by Carmen. This is a new group that brings together people from the same community who know each other well and trust in each other. In general the members make a living selling birds, shoes, bread, groceries in neighborhood stores, candy, empanadas, and some work in transportation with mototaxis. The business environment for the group members is quite competitive, but with their will to work and their experience they are able to make headway to provide their households with a better quality of life. The loan will be used to acquire materials, spare parts, ingredients and tools that will help the members generate more income to make their family finances stable. Despite being a new group the members have experience with group loans and know how to administer the funds well.

In this group: Carmen, Yamely, Petrona, Daniel Angel, Leonilda, Yohany, Bethy, Reinelda, Arnaldo, Carmen Julia, Rosita, Jose, Aracely, Maricela
