A loan of $6,675 helped a member to buy canned goods wholesale.


Cosmos 79 Group's story

The Cosmos 79 communal bank will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata regional center. It is comprised of eight members and led by a board of directors. Santusa is the president.

The loan that they will take out will benefit small businesswomen where Santusa is a member. She currently has a neighborhood store business. She says she learned this business on her own initiative several years ago.

The loan that she will now take out will be used to increase capital to buy canned goods wholesale. This way of working allows her to generate resources to financially support her family. She is in a common-law marriage, and she has four children.

In this group: Santusa Virginia, Delfina Beatris, Daniela Cecilia, Olga, Pascuala, Cintia, Noel , Patricia
