Banco Comunal Amor De Mujeres Group's story

Socorro, 63, is one of the members of the Amor de Mujeres community bank. She has 6 children, all of whom she supports. She has operated a business making and selling tortillas for 18 years. She operates her shop, called Las Mojarras, from her house. This is her first loan and she will use it to buy maize, quicklime, firewood, bags and other kitchen supplies that she needs for the business. The loan will help her to increase the income she needs to support her family. She also wants to make improvements to her house. The other members of the group have various businesses and, like Socorro, are grateful for the help the bank provides.
