74-Las Julianas Group's story

The 74-Las Julianas communal bank is made up of eight members: seven women and one man. The president of the communal bank is Eligia who was chosen for her sense of responsibility and solidarity with her fellow members. Eligia makes and sells food for a living at her kiosk which is located in the Virgen de Lujan area.

This loan is the first in the loan cycle for this microfinance institution. Eligia will use this loan to purchase plastic chairs and tables for her kiosk as her clientele has increased, and she wants to make them more comfortable. She seeks this loan to expand her business.

Eligia faces challenges in her business such as market competition. She will use the profits to improve her quality of life. She is extremely happy and grateful to the microfinance institution for the support given.
