A loan of $750 helped a member to invest in yogurt-making supplies.

Emprendedores De Vitarte Group's story

People eager to get ahead and make progress in life--that describes the members of the communal bank "Emprendedores de Vitarte" [Entrepreneurs of Vitarte], made up of seven members who are mostly women. A new bank which has just one objective, to get ahead and achieve economic triumphs.

One case in particular is that of Pilar Q., 42 years of age, married and mother of six children of whom three are minors. She works in the production and sale of natural yogurt by traditional methods. In the mornings she also works selling prepared food. She invests the income generated by the sale of prepared food and yogurt especially in the education of her children and in savings for the home.

In the future she would like to set up machinery for making yogurt. She will invest the current loan in supplies for making yogurt. Like Pilar Q., each member of the bank "Emprendedores de Vitarte" has a business initiative which he/she is motivated to carry out.

I cannot finish without mentioning the effort and dedication they all demonstrate on a daily basis for the wellbeing of their families and their own businesses.

In this group: Pilar, Liliana, Octavia, Leao Junior, Roxana Del Pilar, Edith Maria, Veronica
