Jesús Pan De Vida Group's story

Carmen is a member of the "Jesús Pan de Vida" communal bank, which is made up of ten responsible and hard-working members. Carmen is 41, married, and has two children. Currently she continues to support the youngest of these, as the child is of school-age. She sells beauty products, and also buys and sells products such as nougats, cookies, cakes, and other items. Thanks to her work she has improved the quality of life for her and her family. She also says that six months ago, she started a new business that she set up in her home. It is a small general store, where she sells basic household necessities. This is the way Carmen has helped with the household expenses. In the future, Carmen would like to finish building the third floor of her house, as she has plans to rent it. On this occasion, she applied for he loan in order to buy milk, sugar, rice, and toys to sell during the Christmas holidays. The members of the "Jesús Pan de Vida" communal bank are grateful, and promise to continue working well with Programa Prosperidad. Melina and Janet could not be present at the disbursement meeting due to work reasons.
