Señor De Malta Group's story

The enterprising bank "SR. D. MALTA " is in its forth cycle. The group is maD. up of eleven women and two men who all know and support each other. This group is represented by the following members:

Mrs. Betty is the president. She is the leader and founder of the bank. She has a business selling hamburgers on Suecia Avenue in the Huayra kàsa neighborhood. This is one of the most populated areas of the city, Cochabamba. She is married and has five school-age children. Her husband is a salaried driver but the money he is paid is not enough to take care of his family. This is why Mrs. Betty helps him with the household bills so they can get their large family ahead. They will buy wholesale supplies and ingredients to make hamburgers with the loan money.

Mrs. Maria is the group's secretary. She is married and has two small children. She is a person who is very responsible and punctual with her payments. She sells food in a temporary area and is active and nice to her companions. She will buy supplies and ingredients to make food with the loan money.

All the members are responsible and dynamic people who, in many cases, get their family's ahead on their own. They are very grateful for Emprender and Kiva for trusting them with a loan.

In this group: Betty , Rosmery, Bertha, Gloria Marina, Maria Cristina, Leonor, Jorge Luis , Benita, Benita, Nancy , Wilfredo
