A loan of $3,675 helped a member to buy supplies for her store.

Santa Maria Group's story

The person who initiated this communal bank was Delia, who invited and organized her friends to join the program Communal Bank of Women Entrepreneurs. Now they are happily working together in an atmosphere of support and respect.

Delia has a store, is married to Antonio, and has 6 children. Five of the children are of legal age and independent, and one is a minor who lives with them. Delia's goal is to grow her business and offer her family a better lifestyle.

She is requesting this loan to buy baked goods, beverages, sweets, maté, etc., with which she will be able to stock her store and always have products to offer her customers.
