Las Rosas Group's story

Consuelo is married, has four children, and works as a weaver. She has been producing traditional clothing for 15 years. Seeing the need for additional capital, she organized a group with her neighbors so that they could request a loan.

Their Communal Bank is called “Las Rosas” (The Roses) and consists of 12 members. Consuelo is the group leader and will use her loan to buy raw materials. This will enable her to increase her sales and generate more earnings. As a result, she will be able to improve her living conditions and contribute toward the development of society.
