Retamitas Group's story

The Communal Bank “Retamitas” meets at one of the Community Centers of Pro Mujer, Santiago II. Their president is Angélica M.. She is 43, married, and has five children.

She sells groceries (rice, noodles, sugar). She has her own store set up in her house. She sells from six in the morning until ten at night. Her children help her.

She now needs a loan to buy rice, sugar, diapers, and liquor.

The rest of her colleagues also have their own businesses of selling, providing services, and production. All of them need the loan to improve their businesses.

In this group: Angélica, Alicia, Casilda, Lucia Ines, Cristhian Rodrigo, Lourdes Ruth, Rona, Rosario
