Ayudemonos Group's story

The “Ayudémonos” (Let Us Help Ourselves) communal bank is in its second cycle in the Plan 3000 zone. Its members are seven women and one man. Mary is group President.

Her main activity is operating a Beauty Salon. She’s married and has three minor children who are in school. Her husband is a Bricklayer. All of the family is very united. She works a lot to offer a better future to her children. She will use the loan money to buy beauty supplies like hair coloring, shampoo, washers and everything she needs to use in her beauty salon.

Mercedes is Treasurer. Her main activity is selling American clothes. She does not have a fixed stand but rather goes from market to market selling her wares. Her husband is a Master Bricklayer and they have two minor daughters who are in elementary school. She will use the loan we offered to increase capital buying American clothes.

All the members are responsible, hard working people who are grateful to the institution for the support provided.
