Barrio Lindo Floresca Group's story

The 'Barrio Lindo Floresca' community bank are beginning their second loan cycle. The group has eight members who live in Vella Vista district. They all have their own businesses and activities. The group's president is Ernestina who is 45 years old. She was elected president of the group because of her responsibility and kindness. She always helps her fellow bank members.

Ernestina's business is selling food from her home. She has been in this business for two years. Ernestina is married to Vicente, who is an electrician, and they have two children who are in school. Ernestina requested this loan to buy supplies and ingredients such as rice, noodles and oil wholesale. She will use these to make her delicious dishes. Ernestina's wish is to eventually own a restaurant and see her children become professionals. The members of this group are grateful to our institution for having placed our trust in them and given them the support they need to grow their businesses.

In this group: Ernestina, Vera Lucia, Sofia, Isidora, Romulo Gerardo, Viviana, Maria Alicia, Wilver
