Cristo Nos Ama Group's story

This community bank is made up of ten entrepreneurs who are existing clients of Fundación León 2000. All of these entrepreneurs support each other and share tips from their businesses so that they can each make progress. The group used their previous loan to invest in their businesses in order to increase their stock. They tell us that they also increased the number of customers to whom they sell their products. Silvia Melania is an entrepreneur who belongs to this group and her business is selling tortillas. She also sells cooked beans. She is currently requesting a loan to buy beans, corn, lime, firewood, bags and other products that she needs for her business.
