A loan of $725 helped to buy comforters and blankets.

Delfina's story

Delfina is a long time member. She has been with the communal bank “Estrella” for several loan cycles. She has grown children, all of whom are married. Her husband works as a driver and she separated from him many years ago. She sells comforters and blankets on credit to workers at the construction company where she has worked for more than five years as a bricklayer and painter. She is a very hardworking person, which is why she is given preferential treatment. She has a good payment history and makes her payments as planned.
