Banco Comunal Corazon De Jesus Group's story

The “Corazón De Jesús” (Heart of Jesus) Communal Bank was born with the intention of improving their business activities. This group set their main objective to be the growth, as much social as economical, of each one of them. All of them are recognized in their area. Dominga is an enterprising and innovative woman; she has a general store. She is a very self-sacrificing woman. Every day she gets up in the very early hours of the morning to go buy her products. She says that with the passing of time she now has a good customer base. She is requesting the loan to buy basic grains, sweets, soft drinks, and detergent, among other things. The other members of the group also have businesses, and they want the loan to invest in their businesses.

In this group: Maria Elsa , Alejandro De Jesus, Dominga Del Socorro, Maria Francisca, Rosa Matilde , Juana Victoria, Liduvina, Nora Del Carmen, Erlinda Del Carmen
