Quiere Al Niño Group's story

Unity and teamwork characterize the Community Bank Quiere al Niño, which is in its 13th loan cycle. Members of Quiere al Niño pursue different kinds of work in order to meet their basic needs. For example, Elias has worked daily, for 8 years, as a motorcycle taxi driver. He has seven children. They are his reason for seeking greater financial security. He plans to put the loan towards auto part repairs and improvements for his motorcycle taxi. Also, Tania has worked for a year selling made-to-order clothing. She is married and has three children, who she works very hard to support.

The members of Quiere al Niño indicate that there is a great deal of competition in their respective businesses. However, this does not discourage them given that they have loyal customers who use their services on a daily basis. The loan will be used to buy materials that will help them achieve a higher income.
