San Crispin Group's story

The Communal Bank St. Crispin (patron saint of shoemakers), part of the regional hub of Germain Busch, is requesting a loan for the first time.

With nine members, one male and eight female, its particularity is that all of them own business related to shoe-making and shoe-selling. Over 50% of the members make"cholita" shoes, which are soled and built using wooden studs, and the rest produce ordinary shoes.

Sonia Q., president of the association, owns a shoe-making business. Seven years ago he learned the ropes of the business through her sister-in-law. This first loan of Bs 2000 will give her the opportunity to buy materials to make shoes. She currently shares the work with her husband.

In this group: Sonia, Constancia, Nohemi, Rosa Maria, Mariela, Cristina, Marcos, Hilda, Elsy
