Maria Auxiliadora Group's story

The communal bank Maria Auxiliadora exists thanks to the help of another communal bank that is working in the area. Currently it consists of 17 women, who set as their main objective the growth of each one of them, in a holistic sense, personally as well as economically.

Sra. Ignacia, president of the group, lives in the city of San Lorenzo. She is married and has 2 children. She sells all kinds of drinks such as beer, whisky, wine, energy drinks and others. She tells us that she has many sales especally at the weekends which is when she has the biggest turnover. Through her hard work and effort, she has been able to get ahead and help with the household expenses and support of her family.

She is asking for a loan to buy beer, whisky, wine, energy drinks and others, with which to stock her business and in this way offer her clients more variety.
