28 De Noviembre Group's story

The '28 de Noviembre' community bank is about to start its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Germán Busch regional office. The group has eight members and is run by a board of executives which is led by Alison. The businesses that the members of the bank carry out are varied and include: commerce, production, farming, selling meals, and services.

Alison tells us that this is the first time she has belonged to a Pro Mujer community bank and she joined through an invitation from a friend. She currently has a business selling food which is something she learned from her family.

Alison will use her loan to buy merchandise (noodles, rice, oil, etc.) which she will use to make her food that she will then sell on her stall in La Ceja. This work enables Alison to make money with which to support her family. She lives with her common-law husband and has three children.

In this group: Alisson Marleni, July Caterin, Ivoneth Zulma , Janeth Irene , Ysnneth , Emiliana, Marisol , Catalina Sofia
