A loan helped a member to invest in her business making and selling cooked sausage so that she can one day have her own restaurant.

Decisiones Group's story

Cinda is 33 years old. She lives with her two children, who are 17 and 14 years old. She is not married but has a partner.

Cinda started her business selling cooked sausage six years ago. She has her business in a residential settlement now, but dreams of one day having her own restaurant.

Cinda's day starts at six in the morning every day, when she prepares all the necessary ingredients. She goes out to sell from nine in the morning until six at night, every day.

Her communal bank is made up of neighbors and people from the area who have known each other for some time. They all have the same dream of growing.

Cinda will invest in her business to improve it, because in the future she wants to build her own house and have her business there. She also wants to have another business in a different area.
