The community bank "Retoño" is represented by Mrs. Jenoveba and is maD. up of 14 members who are completed a third cycle together showing unity and solidarity with their partners. They are a happy group and reliable with their payments which is why they were offered new economic support so that they can continue to grow and develop sufficient capital to improve their quality of life. A large majority of the members work in the commercial sector selling drinks, food, children's clothing, and perfume sales (Avon, Esika, and Ebel).

The primary hope of the group is good education for their children as well as personal improvement and more profitable businesses which will proviD. a better quality of life for their families.
