A loan of $3,300 helped a member to buy construction materials to put a roof over her food stall.

Los Puntuales Group's story

The communal bank 'Los Puntuales' is made up of 9 members, 7 women and 2 men. The president is Mónica; she is 30 years old and a single mother of four children. She makes a living selling food. Her food stall is located in zone 23 of Diciembre. This is the second loan she has taken out. She will use it to buy construction material to put a roof over her food stall. It is currently rainy season, and it is difficult to work without covering. With a roof she will be protected from rain as well as sun. Her reason for taking out this loan is to grow her business. The challenge that Mónica faces is competition in the market. She wants to use the benefits she receives from her business to improve her quality of life.
