Flor De Tuna Ii Group's story

The Flor de Tuna II Communal Bank is entering its first cycle and will be part of the Alto Lima center. Although they do not have any experience working as a communal bank, they are confident that this cycle will help them get to know each other and strengthen the bonds of friendship. The group consistes of 8 persons, 7 women and 1 man. Each of the members has their own business, among which are: crafts made from rubber, sale of seafood, sale of silver jewelry, sale of shoes by catalog, a bazaar, and a parts store. The Flor de Tuna Communal Bank is governed by a board composed of a president, a treasurer and a recording secretary. The president, Narda, has participated for 15 years in the Flor de Tuna Communal Bank, this is her first cycle with the Flor de Tuna II Communal Bank. Over time she has developed two businesses. First has a bazaar that she opened herself and on the other hand she makes piñatas. The loan she is requesting will help buy supplies for making piñatas: foam, plastoform, glue. She has the support of her brother to help in both businesses. The piñatas are distributed to stores that order them. When asked why she is in Pro Mujer she answers "health", referring to the health service.
