Banco Comunal Arca De Noe Group's story

The communal bank Arca de Noe [Noah’s Ark] is made up of 8 members, all enterprising women who have joined together to support each other and to move forward. This is not the first loan this group has received. They have asked for loans in the past and have been excellent clients, maintaining a very good credit rating.

Josefa is 50 years old, her children are now adults and they help her financially. The business she makes her living in is selling tortillas. She wakes up very early to work and so that she can serve her customers well. Josefa is asking for a loan to invest in her business by buying, among other things, maize, a tortilla-pan, lime, and bags.

In this group: Martha Del Socorro, Marcela Zenayda, Jazmina Del Carmen , Adriana Esperanza, Blanca Nubia, Josefa , Gladis Del Rosario, Deyanira
