Genesis Group's story

The 11-member Genesis Community Association is starting its fourth loan cycle in the Germán Busch centre. The president of the Board of Directors is Señora Ana, treasurer is Señora Margarita, and secretary is Señora Ines. The members of the group have a range of businesses such as hardware store, food sales, knitting leg warmers, soft drinks sales, growing and selling flowers, locksmith’s shop, underwear sales, builder, and skirt weaving.

President Ana has already been through three loan cycles with community associations. She has had a business selling food from her home for eight months. She has no employees so it is a great advantage to be able to work from home as she can care for her three children and husband at the same time.

In this group: Ana Porfiria*, Rosa, Reveca, Julia, Susana, Constancio, Ines Rossio, Margarita, Julia, Florencia, Julia
