A loan helped a member to purchase stationary hair dryers.


Oriental Group's story

Justina is a 43-year-old enterprising woman. She is the president of the ORIENTAL Community Bank. We can see her in the photograph sitting in the center.

All the members of the Bank are merchants. Some make a living from the sale of food in fixed places and others make a living from the sale of clothing.

Justina applied for the loan to buy hair dryers. It is what she needs for her business; she has a beauty salon.

She dreams of opening other branches of her salon. She hopes to grow and strengthen her business.

This loan is special because:

It allows financially marginalized people to access loans and training through communal banks.
