Virgen De Guadalupe De Santa Clara Group's story

The community group "Virgen de Guadalupe de Santa Clara" is a successful community bank with a lot in common, including enthusiasm for developing their businesses. It was formed by seven members six months ago. Each members works at different businesses.

Iris is 47 years old, has two children, one of whom is married already. She sells food every day in the mornings and in the afternoons she cares for her younger child. She started this business because her mother also works at the same business. With hard work she has been able to contribute financially to her household so they can continue getting ahead.

She is requesting this loan to improve her business and purchase merchandise since the Christmas season is approaching.

Just like Iris, each member of this community bank fights to get ahead, and with great effort and dedication they are achieving it every day for their own well-being and that of their families.

In this group: Iris Elena, Heraclio Simeon, Carla Luz, Yrene, Vilmar, Raquel Pilar, Hilda Ysabel
