The group members sell vegetables, cosmetics, supplies, clothes and others. Mrs. TRINIDAD is the bank president and has 2 children. She sells bedspreads at wholesale. She is a quite dynamic and responsible person. She increased her working capital with the loan. Mrs. JULIA MARGARITA is the Bank secretary and has 2 children. She is a taxi driver and owner of the taxi. With the loan she was able to have maintenance work done in order to work without inconveniences. Mrs. MICAELA is the Bank treasurer. She is young and she sells beauty products. With the loan she was able to buy her products in bulk that were on sale such as perfumes, deodorants, powders, and others.
