A loan of $3,700 helped a member to buy drinks for later sale.

Divino Niño Jesús Group's story

The contact for starting this communal bank was Sara. She invited and organized her friends to become part of the Comité de Mujeres Emprendoras (Enterprising Women) program. They were happy to do so, and the group came about from that. They are working jointly, helping one another move forward.

Cynthia is one of the members. She sells drinks and lingerie. She has been together with Diego for eight years. He is an ironworker. They have two daughters who are minors, and go to primary school.

She says that her drinks business is going very well, because she always has a lot of customers. This is why she likes to continue investing in it. She is applying for a loan in order to stock up on all kinds of drinks, such as wine, energy drinks, and others.

She dreams about setting up her own business in her home, where she can offer her clients a good variety of meals and drinks, and so manage to increase her income, and provide the best for her family.
