Lourdes's story

Lourdes is an old client, since 2001, of the communal bank. She has a neighborhood store and sells diverse items such as bread, drinks, groceries, canned goods, and other items. Her store is well supplied and one can find all sorts of things, even a needle so to speak. Her store is found in a strategic location, and she meets the demand of the neighborhood residents. It is the only store in the area.

Lourdes lives in the neighborhood where her store is located. She lives with her daughter, son-in-law, and nieces and nephews. She is very energetic and enterprising.

Through her business and previous loans she has increased her capital and her business has grown. She is asking for a loan in order to buy merchandise such as drinks and sweets in order to supply her store. She is very grateful for the help of the communal bank.
