Francisca has a grocery and vegetable store. She started out her business with a small store and today thanks to the support she received, she has been able to expand her business and she added a second floor to her house. What she most enjoys about the communal bank meetings is the savings program and the orientation sessions that help her with her personal life. She will invest this loan in the purchase of rice and sugar because she supplies daycares. Francisca is saving to be able to have a wholesale business.
