A loan of $2,025 helped a member buying merchandise, raw materials, and tools.

Las Hijas De Jesús Group's story

The members of the community bank "Las Hijas de Jesús" ("The Daughters of Jesus") are represented by Mrs. Viviana and composed of fourteen members who live in the same neighborhood. All the women have their own businesses such as selling fruits in the market, crocheting macramé purses, and Mrs. Teresa's grocery store. The other members sell food, clothes, toys, bread, empanadas, and cosmetics.

The competition within their areas of commerce is high, but in spite of this they know how to keep their businesses going. The loan will be used for growing their businesses with the purchase of merchandise, raw materials, and tools to increase their incomes further, which would allow them to give their families a better quality of life.

As for the women's credit experience, they are beginning their first loan cycle with the institution, but they are glad that it offers them the economic support to help them generate greater incomes and improve the quality of life of their families.

In this group: Viviana, Ana Julia, Ricardo, Yeni, Wilma, Elena*, Teresa, Tiburcia, Marina, Ana, Magdalena, Alvina, Mercedes, Leodan
