Amigas Inseparables Group's story

“Amigas Inseparables” (Inseparable Friends) is the name of this communal bank that’s starting its first cycle in the Santiago II Focal Center. It is composed of seven women and one man.

Valentina is President. Like the other members of the group this is her first cycle within a communal bank. She sells food, specifically “salchipapas” (fried potatoes with fried sausages or fried chicken), a fast food that is very liked because of its low price and composition: pieces of sausage and fried potatoes.

She starts sales at 5pm in a snack bar she bought six months ago. Back then, she started her business on her own. She has four children and her daughter helps her run the business.

The loan is for Bs 2000 which will be used to enlarge the snack bar.

The communal bank has 7 women and one man. Each has a different business, for example: food sales, fried chicken sales, skirt making, pants sales, tablecloth sales, Broasted-style chicken sales and a car body repairs.

In this group: Valentina, Emilia, Reina Isabel, Lidia Angelica, Daniel, Roxana Araceli, Rocio Jeannette, Eufronia
