The president is Mrs. Damiana. She is married with three children and has a business where she sells food and drinks. Her husband is a construction worker. Both contribute to their household expenses. The business is very well known in the area. Because the meetings are held at Mrs. Damiana's house, the members of the communal bank decided to call it El Escondite ("The Hideout"). With the loan, she will buy the ingredients to make her rich dishes and also to buy beverages. This communal bank is maD. up of neighbors in the area that have lived there for several years. Each one has an independent activity; they work from Monday to Sunday. They know each other very well. Two men participate in the group and are very well known for their respective activity. It is a very organized, dynamic bank.
