A loan of $4,450 helped a member to purchase rolls of fabric for making skirts.

22-Niño Jesus Group's story

The Entrepreneurial Bank, 22-Niño Jesus, is made up of nine members, seven women and two men. The president of the bank is María, who is 50 years old and is married with a 20-year-old son. María works making traditional skirts, and has dedicated her time and efforts to this craft for several years. Her workshop is located in the zone of Circunvalación. This is her second loan with this institution, and she plans to use the support from the loan to purchase rolls of fabric for making skirts. She is requesting this loan because she lacks the working capital to presently make the purchase.

María faces challenges in her business, and she is constantly working to improve the quality of products she makes. She hopes to utilize her income to continue growing her business and her working capital. Her dream for her business is to keep growing and to master the designs for a wide variety of clothing items. María is grateful to this institution for their support of her business and their support for her fellow group members.

In this group: Felicidad , Hortencia, Rosario, Jorge Luis, Maria Marcelina, Marco Antonio, Nora Juana, Maria Elena, Aydee
