Trabajando Unidas Group's story

"Trabajando Unidas" ["Working Together"] Community Bank

Lucia, like all mothers, is very hard-working. Years ago, when her children were small, she worked hard to give them the best that she could- to give them an education and comforts. She sold food near her home, and would go to the market every day to look for items for her daily menu. Now, she sells food, as well as chickens that she raises in the second floor of her home. She sells them on order to her customers and acquaintances. She is requesting this loan for the wholesale purchase of basic materials, and with her savings she will be able to buy food for her chickens.

Lucia belongs to the "Trabajando Unidas" ["Working Together"] community bank. They are responsible people, all of whom know each other since they have been neighbours for several years. Each one has given the best of herself to her family, and the majority of them dream of seeing their children grow up and having long-lasting and profitable businesses.

In this group: Lucia, Rosa, Paulina, Haydee, Maria Veronica, Nelida Diana, Carlos Augusto
