Corazón De Jesús Group's story

Juana is a member of the Corazón de Jesús Communal Bank, which is made up of 10 members, the majority of whom are neighbors from the area. Juana is 55 years old and her family is made up of her, her partner, and three independent children. She buys and sells clothing for children and adults for a living. This business grew out of her idea for making more income and being able to offer her family a better quality of life. She also offers cleaning services. She currently supports her grandchildren in their education. In the future, Juana would like to set up a grocery store, as that way she will be sure to make more income. At the moment, she is asking for this loan to buy clothing, such as sweaters, pants, jackets, scarves, and bedspreads. The Corazón de Jesús Communal Bank is very grateful and promises to keep working hard.
