The communal bank Kantati is made of nine members. Most of the women are shoe makers that live in the May 3rd district, but a certain percentage of the members have neighborhood grocery stores since they live in the same area. There are also two men in the group.

The president is Señor Víctor. He is 56 years old, married and is a responsible, dynamic person .His group knows this about him and that is why they elected him president. He works seven days a week as a salaried driver for a well-known company in the city. He will use the money from the loan to maintain his vehicle.

The secretary is Señora Zulma. She is married and crafts shoes for a living from a shop in her home. She sat out for one loan cycle and decided to rejoin the group. She will use the money from the loan to buy leather for shoemaking.

This group has been around for a while and is in its ninth loan cycle. They are grateful to the institution for the support they provide.

In this group: Victor Geronimo, Lucila , Gabriela , Bertha, Raul, Estela , Zulma, Hilda, Dionicia Victoria
