32-Señor De Malta Group's story

The "32-Señor de Malta" communal bank is made up of 11 members. The chairperson of the bank is Betty, 37. She is not married, but is a single mother with five children who depend on her; some are of school age. She makes and sells hamburgers. Her sales location is in her own home, and she lives in the eastern area of the city of Cochabamba. This loan is her 11th with the institution. Betty will use this loan to buy ingredients for making hamburgers. The reason for applying for this loan is to increase her working capital. Betty faces challenges in her business, such as giving quality service and dealing with competition, and will use the profits to improve her quality of life. Her dream for her business is to have a permanent sales location.
