A loan of $1,375 helped a member to buy meat, chicken, ham, cheese, condiments, baked goods, and other ingredients.


San Francisco Group's story

The San Francisco communal bank originated through promotions that the advisors made in the zone. All of the members are neighbors who know each other. They got together with a great deal of hope that they would be able to get ahead through the Committee of Entrepreneurial Women with the Fundación.

Fabriciana is one of the members of the group. She tells us that she sells all types of food like sandwiches, croquettes, empanadas, and others. Thanks to the fact that she has a gift for cooking, she has good clientele who always buy from her. Her goal is to be able to have a place where she can sell the food she makes.

She is requesting the loan to buy meat, chicken, ham, cheese, condiments, baked goods, and the rest of the ingredients she needs to make the food that she sells.
