Jade Group's story

The communal bank “JADE” is part of the Jatun Sonqo agency. It includes eight members who know each other. It is managed by a board of directors, of which Paola Lizbeth is the president.

Paola, age 27, is married and has two small children. She has a neighborhood store. The loan that she will take is to increase capital to buy merchandise (preserves, sodas, sweets, and biscuits).

The business that she has is the means of working that permits her to generate income to provide for her family financially. Her goal is to continue to make the business grow, to have greater profits.

Paola Lizbeth's objective is to make her neighborhood store into a supermarket, and her dream is to have her own house and to see her children be professionals.
