Las Amapolas Group's story

The partners of the community bank "La Amapolas" are represented by señora Virginia Julia and the group is comprised of 12 members. The majority sell clothing, food, snacks and cosmetics from catalogs. They have a high level of competence because the women have a lot of experience and know how to advance their businesses by offering various products of good quality. They will use their loan to buy products more tailored to the needs of the market which have changed with the new season. For instance, the purchase of primary materials, supplies and other materials to sell will help them make larger investments in their family and improve their homes. The women of this community bank have ample knowledge of how to work in solidarity groups because of their previous participation in similar groups with Fundación Agrocapital where they are finishing their second loan cycle. This indicates their ability to manage funds, repay responsibly, and, above all, the unity within their group helps them economically and allows them to continue growing.
