El Renacer De Chacrasana Group's story

The communal bank ‘El Renacer de Chacrasana’ is made up of 9 enterprising and responsible women.

Elba is 57 and married with 3 children, who live independently. Elba made the decision to start her own business because she wanted to get ahead and afford her family a better quality of life. She set up a stationery in her home and she has been in this line of work for 8 years. Elba is proud, because with her husband’s help she has succeeded in her children becoming professionals. Currently she is supporting one of her granddaughters with her education.

She will use the loan requested to buy school equipment, such as notebooks, ballpoint pens, folders and felt-tip pens so she will have them to offer her customers for the school year. Elba’s wish is to continue working positively and therefore continue to help her granddaughter. The communal bank ‘El Renacer de Chacrasana’ are grateful for the loan offered and they are committing to continue working well.
