Sol Naciente Group's story

The 'Sol Naciente' (Rising Sun) community bank is in its seventh loan cycle. Its members have shown themselves to be responsible and hard-working people. The group is represented by the following members:

Ángela is the group's president. She is the leader and founder of the group and her business is selling teddy bears in a centrally-located street in the city of Cochabamba. She is married and has 9 children who all live independently and have their own businesses. She requested her loan to buy teddy bears and thereby increase her working capital.

Silvia is the group's treasurer. She is married and has two young daughters. She owns a neighborhood store which is located in her home. Silvia requested her loan to buy food products. She is a long-standing member of the group and has shown herself to be a very responsible person who is punctual in making her loan repayments.

All the members of the group are grateful to the institution for the support they have offered them.
