A loan of $2,375 helped a member to purchase vegetables for resale.

Santa Ana Group's story

Mirtha is a member of the communal bank named Santa Ana, a communal bank formed 10 years ago. The members are individuals who struggle every day to improve the economy of their homes. A representative is Mirtha. She is 37 years old, married common-law, and she is the mother of 4 children, 3 of whom are minors. She sells every day vegetables at a small market near her home. Her business gives her time to work and to educate her children. The root of the reason why she started her business is that the household income was too low and they needed a greater income to be able to cover expenses such as the education of the children and home improvements. With her efforts and hard work she has been able to build a house and to provide her children with an education. In the future she would like to expand her vegetables sales business to be able to pay for her eldest son's university expenses. The recent loan will be used to purchase vegetables to sell in her business.
