A loan of $3,875 helped a member operating capital.


Divino Niño Group's story

Luminada represents the Divino Niño Bank. The bank is comprised of 14 very dynamic and hard-working members. Most of the members sell empanadas in the central market. The rest of the members also have the same type of businesses; but they sell baked goods, “saltañas” (Bolivian stuffed pastries), and groceries in neighborhood stores. Their only competition is among themselves because there are not a lot of people doing the same work. Almost all live in the hospital neighborhood. The only thing lacking is the capital to make their businesses grow.

That is why they need a loan to buy supplies and materials to expand and finance their businesses more. This group is in their third cycle. They demonstrate punctuality and the desire to get ahead in their businesses. They want this to be able to give their families a better quality of life.

In this group: Luminada, Anel, Maritza, Luciana, Maria Tereza, Mariela, Elena, Wilma, Maria Rosario, Petrona, Enry, Elizabeth, Enrique, Jeine Rosario
