Las Marias Group's story

The Communal Bank "Las Marías" is made up of 10 enterprisers that are from the same town. Each one of them has a business in which they offer ideas to improve in their businesses. This group has already had a loan with Fundación León 2000, and they have demonstrated that they are responsible people with good values. This group expresses to us that with the financing that was offered to them previously, they have increased their merchandise and their customers in the same way. The enterpriser Maria Angélica, who is part of this group, works as a salesperson of general merchandise. She has this business located in her home where she lives and travels to visit her customers. With the loan, she will buy shirts, blouses, sandals, shoes, pants, shorts, skirts, and a variety of cosmetics among other products.
