Chispitas De Panamericana Group's story

Claudia B. is a member of the communal bank “Chispitas de Panamericana.” She sells food, specifically rellenos (stuffed food), and has done this for 6 years. Claudia learned this business from her mother and now needs a loan so she can buy the ingredients for the rellenos like wholesale flour, potatoes, and rice. Buying wholesale will reduce her expenses. Claudia is also the mother of a son she needs to feed, cloth, and protect. And Claudia also likes the trainings and consultations she has with Pro Mujer.

The women who are members of Chispitas de Panamericana mostly have commercial businesses like selling sweets, chickens, cards, baby clothing, and working in cafeterias. They need loans to be able to buy products to sell to their customers.
