Solidario Vida Group's story

“Vida” (Life) Communal Bank

Maria Julieta C. S. is 36 years old. She has three children, and they attend a government school. Her business is selling new clothes. She started the business four years ago. She has a small place on the side of the street where she lives. Her neighbors now know her, and, starting very early, they come to buy her merchandise.

The loan she is requesting is to buy more blouses, t-shirts, and pants. The demand for her merchandise is now rising. Her dream is to expand and open a new place in her municipality. She wants to do this to get better earnings and to improve her children’s future.

The Vida group is comprised of two women and one man. The three of them sell new clothes, and they have their own places. They wish to invest more in clothes. Their dream is to see their businesses grow, to get greater income, and to give their children a better future.

In this group: Maria Julieta , Francisco Javier , Yenifer Nohemi
