Tunka Group's story

The TUNKA entrepreneur bank is a group that was established in the Villa Concepción area and has entered its eighth work cycle without any payment problems whatsoever. It is comprised of eight very responsible members who carry out different business activities to maintain their families.

Mrs. Placida is the president of the group and is a seamstress who makes undergarments. She does not live with her husband so is responsible for her children and for covering household expenses. She plans to use the loan to buy a sewing machine so she can increase production since she has many orders to fill. The other members plan to use the loan to either increase their working capital or begin a business. As seen in the photo, one of the members came with her husband.

In this group: Placida, Ivaneth, Marlene Cristina, Jimena, Teresa, Arminda Angelica , Elizabeth Ely , Carmen Rosa
