Emanuel Group's story

The “Emanuel” community bank is part of the Villa Tejada Agency. It consists of eight m embers who are friends, and is led by an executive committee of which Yessica is the President.

Yessica is 24 years old, single, and has one child. Today she has a business selling food. She learned this work a long time ago.

The loan being taken out will be used to increase capital in order to buy rice, noodles, and oil at wholesale from the wholesale vendors in La Paz city. Then she will make and sell food from her sales stand. This work will enable her to generate resources in order to support her family economically. Her goals are to obtain her own store and house. Yessica asks that you have confidence in her community bank.
