Aventura - 26 Group's story

The 'Aventura' community bank has nine members: eight women and one man. Gabriela is the bank's president. She is 43 years old, married, and has two children who are 13 and 21 years old. Her business is selling clothing and a variety of other products. She makes her sales in the town of Guanay. This loan is her first with the institution. Gabriela will use her loan to buy clothing, utensils and other products for her business. Her reason for requesting this loan is to increase her working capital. She faces challenges in her business such as the innovation of new products. She will use the profits she makes to improve her family's quality of life. Gabriela dreams of having a fixed business so that she no longer has to travel and can therefore be nearer her family. She feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support they are providing.
