Gotitas De Amor Group's story

Felipa, 63, is a member of the “Gotitas D. Amor” (Little Drops of Love) communal bank which has 7 members dedicated to diverse commercial activities.

She’s a widow with seven children two of which still depend on her. She sells products like cakes, Panettones and nougats, among others. She’s been in this line of work for over 25 years. She tells us that she started out selling food and lollipops outsiD. her house. Thanks to the good way she managed her income she was able to amass some capital to invest in starting her own business. With her efforts, Felipa has purchased her own land and helped her children with their education.

Felipa’s goal is to open a store where she can sell basic need items to continue supporting her children’s schooling. She will use the requested loan to buy larger amounts of products.

The “Gotitas D. Amor” communal bank’s members are responsible people who are grateful for the support and trust that’s been placed in them. María wasn’t able to be present because she had to take her husband to the doctor.
