Union Progreso Group's story

Carole is a member of the “Unión Progreso” community bank. This bank has 11 members who are engaged in different commercial activities. Carole is 30 years old and has one child who is solely dependent on her as she tells us that she is a single mother. Carole currently sells gelatin desserts and drinks from her sales location which is based on a sports court She also sells clothes as this way she is able to make more profits for herself and her little one. This is how Carole has got ahead in life, by working hard.

Carole's wish is to finish re-building her home as it is currently only built from pre-fabricated material (wood). She plans to invest her loan in her clothes business, buying pants, tops, jackets and blouses. The members of the "Unión Progreso" community bank are grateful for the help they are being given.
