Acuario Group's story

A group with good ideas and who work very hard to realize them-- this is how to describe the Acuario Community Bank, maD. up of seven members who live in the Vitarte district. One special story is that of Mrs. Melva C., age 57, who is married with three children. She has rented rooms in her house for over 14 years and also has a vehicle that she rents for public transportation. She started this business because she has a large house with many unoccupied rooms, so she decided to rent them out in order to generate an income. With time and a lot of work she was able to start this business and gain economic stability and an education for her children. In the future she would like to have a store to sell auto lubricant. We cannot concluD. this description without mentioning the hard work and dedication of each member of this group to the well-being and financial improvement of their families.

In this group: Nelva, Proselita , Yoni Noe , Raquel Elena *, Juan , Ana Maria , Sergia
