San José Group's story

The community bank called San Jose is in its second loan cycle and has 16 members. It is a group that stands out in the neighborhood for being very united, mutually supportive, and responsible. The members have a great entrepreneurial spirit, since they are up-to-date with their payments and they intend to finish this cycle by continuing to carry out their responsibility to the institution.

With the acquiring of the loan, many doors will be opened for the progress of their businesses. Sra. Eulogia P. is one of the members. She has a little farm on which her family raises and fattens animals such as chickens, ducks, and pigs. They also have cows for the production of milk and cheese-making. The business is very productive, taking into account the quality of their products and animals. She wants to expand the business through the purchase of more animals such as chickens (baby chicks) to fatten and also by purchasing balanced feeds for the animals. In this way she wants to increase her income and continue expanding her agricultural business.
