A loan helped a member to buy furniture for her chicken restaurant.

Financiera Comumpiari Group's story

Orieta is considered to be a happy, hardworking, jovial woman, who above all is quite an entrepreneur. She is 32 years old, and the single mother of two small children. One is 12 and the other is 6. Orieta has had a small restaurant for one year, where she serves chicken.

Orieta says, "I wanted to start this new chicken business and grow as a person, and offer the best to my customers." She seeks this loan to improve her restaurant by buying furniture she needs in order to provide better service to her customers and make them feel satisfied.

She is in a group called Financiera Comumpiari. She is the leader of the group.

Her other job is cleaning her land and farming. This also generates income which she spends on educating and raising her children. Her greatest desire is to move forward with her children and grow her business in a sustainable manner so that her children feel proud of their hardworking mother.

In this group: Carmen Maria, Eugenio, Victoria, Maximiliana, Teresa, Vilma, Honorata, Herminia, Orieta, Julia, Zenaida, Esperanza, Gabriela, Sulma, Maria
