El Naranjal Group's story

The El Naranjal Communal Bank is represented by Norah. It is comprised of 15 members who are in their second cycle together. They demonstrate responsibility and the desire to get their small businesses ahead with economic help offered by the institution. They work in activities like selling empanadas and soft drinks, fresh vegetables, typical food, children’s clothes, and groceries in neighborhood stores. Others work in transportation, tailoring, and as employees in different businesses. The level of competition in their fields is high, but the members know how to get ahead thanks to their enthusiasm and desire to succeed.

The loan is for the acquisition of merchandise, supplies, and materials to increase their sales and their income. The income will serve to improve the quality of life for their families.

As far as experience goes, the members have already worked with the foundation. They want to keep growing together with our institution to look for a better future for their children and their families.

In this group: Norah, Lourdes Claudia, Isabel, Petronila, Mary, Noemi, Yovanna, Luis Alfredo, Cintia, Carmen Rosa, Lucina, Maria Cinthia, Virginia, Alexander, Gustavo
