Chicas Superpoderosas Group's story

The Chicas Superpoderosas community bank consists of 11 member-clients who belong to the Alto San Isidro area, located at stop 211 on the minibus line. The members work in baking, sewing, selling clothes, and selling food such as saltenas, empanadas (types of stuffed pastries with meat and vegetables) and potatoes.

During the group’s tenure at Emprender they have restructured 2 loan cycles in 40% of the members. The members are responsible and accomplished.

Gabriela is the representative, leader, and founder of the venture bank. She has been in charge as president for 2 of the 3 loan cycles that the bank has had. Before her time with the bank she showed responsibility in the payment of her loans. She works selling new clothes. In the communal bank she has emerged as a responsible person to proviD. support to all the members either morally or economically, demanding their share of the payments at the due date. The loan is invested in the purchase of goods so as to increase capital and generate more income.

Flora, a partner in this cycle, took over as treasurer of the bank. She is one of the representatives for the bank who joined this cycle. This is her first cycle and the first time she has obtained a loan. Currently she has a photocopy shop. The loan will be invested in the increase of capital for the store.
Fidel is one of the founders of the bank and is the only male. During his tenure of 2 loan cycles he demonstrated strict punctuality in his loan payments with the other female partners. The loan is sought to invest in masonry tools.
