Los Propios Group's story

The “Los Propios” Entrepreneurial bank is made up of eight members; two women and two gentlemen. All of them live in the same zone of the Bolivia and Paraiso neighborhoods of El Torno and Santa Rita. They each have had their own businesses for a number of years in El Torno.

Saida is the president. She is married and has two young daughters. She sells cosmetics through a catalog. Saida is hard working and responsible and shows solidarity with her fellow members. This is why they elected her as a representative. She will use the money from this loan to buy cosmetics, which are currently being offered at a reduced price and be able sell them at a greater profit.

All of the group’s members have families and businesses. They all hope to be able to buy homes, vehicles, land, etc. in the future. They are grateful to the institution for the trust they have placed in them by granting this loan.

In this group: Saida Cinthia , Sandy, Ema , Wendy Marcia, Israel, Justo Erasmo, Yenny , Maria Lidia
