Las Poderosas Group's story

The Las Poderosas community bank is starting its first round of funding with 8 members: 6 women and 2 men. All of the members live in Quebrada Seca. The members operate various businesses selling products such as prepared foods and "cotillones" (party masks, streamers and other paraphanelia for parties).
Srta. Sandra, the president of the group, makes and sells cotillones. Sandra, 22, lives in Quebrada Seca and has operated the business for a year. She will use the loan to buy the materials she needs--paper and cardboard, for example--to make the products she sells. Sandra is single and the income from her business helps to support her mother, brothers and sisters.
The members of the group say that they are grateful for your trust and support because your loans make it possible for them to continue their businesses.

In this group: Julianita, Claudia, Sandra Yohany, Luisa, Efrain, Ruth Viviana, Adela, Marcial
