30 De Enero Group's story

The group “30 de enero” is represented by Ms. Brigida and is made up of 12 members who are starting their second loan cycle. Most of the members are from the same neighborhood and know each other well, which makes them a united group that works together to keep the bank running smoothly. The members are all responsible adults. Among the different jobs of each member is the president, who works as a traveling cosmetics saleswoman, which generates a good income for her. There are also members who sell food from their homes, make and sell empanadas, soft drinks, members who work in hardware stores, housecleaning services, and some of the men work as moto-taxi drivers. Competition is very tough for the members, especially in cosmetics sales, food and transportation services, but the members know how to keep moving forward with enthusiasm and hard work. The loan will be used to grow their businesses, increase their sales and offer better service to their customers, so that in the future they will be able to give their children a good education and improve the quality of life for their families.

In this group: Brigida, Neida, Emilene , Felipe, Juan Carlos, Henrry, Carola Susan, Elizabeth, Claudia Cecilia, Guely, Angelica, Natividad
