A loan helped a member to buy marmol.


Amigas De Jesus Group's story

Escarleth is 34 years old and a single mother of two children. She is a businessperson and an artisan who has worked making handicrafts and food for the past 3 years. She belongs to the communal bank “Amigas de Jesús”.

She started making and selling marble crafts since this activity is a family tradition. Then she started preparing food for events, and she continues doing these activities up to this day.

She is requesting a loan with FUNDENUSE to buy marble stone and thus increase her production and her incomes. Her goal for the future is to establish a point of sale in the place where she lives, and also to put a stand in her house where she can sell food.
