Corazon Salvaje Group's story

The community bank “Corazón Salvaje” (Wild Heart) is respresented by Mrs. Carmen Alicia and made up of 12 members who are mothers and fathers who work non-stop in order to improve their families’ lives and their businesses, so they can complete their responsibilities and increase their earnings to sustain their families. Among the jobs that the members hold are selling food, selling clothing, housecleaning, and cosmetics sales. The men work in transportation, brick-laying and as employees for different companies. There is a lot of job competition so they must work hard and make additional sacrifices in order to generate income. They also have to compete against strong, established businesses like restaurants and boutiques, but this does no discourage them. The competition only makes them work better in order to have economic success. This loan will be used to grow their businesses so they can better serve their customers, by increasing their merchandise and using better equipment. The members have a lot of experience and most of them have worked with similar groups, so they know how to manage the funds so that they can grow their businesses and increase their earnings for their families.

In this group: Carmen Alicia, Jorge, Ancelmo, Mery, Isavel, Fatima Leidy, Faviola Ximena, Eva Yomaira, Piedades, Robin, Teresita, Ynes
