Santa Barbara Group's story

The group called “Santa Barbara” is represented by Mrs. Leidy Nahir and 13 members who have shown punctuality, responsibility, and desire to work to succeed since the first cycle. The majority of the members have small shopping businesses such as selling clothes, shoes, poultry, groceries, and the production of articles of clothing.Competition within their area is high but the members have been working for years and can count on loyal clients and experience in the business so competition does not worry them much. The funding will be used to purchase merchandise, supplies, and materials that will help generate greater profits to offer their families higher standards of living. As far as the credit experience comes these members are pursuing a deeper cycle in the institution, always demonstrating punctuality and responsibility in their payments since not only the obligated payments depend on those qualities but the support and future of their families as well.

In this group: Leidy Nahir, Fanny, Milba Yannett, Monica, Esther, Silbana, Maria Elena, Emma Mercedes, Yuly, Yubinka, Veronica, Roxana, Sonia
