A loan of $1,500 helped a member to buy ice cream.

Sonata En Invierno Group's story

Carla is a new member of the communal bank "Sonata en Invierno." She lives with a partner, and they have 3 children in the home to look after and educate. The 7 members of her communal bank have known each other for a long time. Carla travels from place to place selling ice cream. She sells in some clubs in Chosica, and also on the interprovincial buses that pass through her community. Carla and her husband have managed to cope with life going from one place to another, even migrating to a neighboring country. But they came back wanting to start their own business, and through their efforts they managed to buy a car so that her husband could work as a driver. Carla's dream is to buy a sales stand where she could sell clothing and shoes and establish herself. She will invest this loan in the purchase of ice cream to sell from her travel bag. In the photo, you see the members of the communal bank "Sonata en Invierno" after the meeting in our institution where they received their loan. The little ones are their daughters.
