This Communal Bank consists of individuals who look at each moment as an opportunity to get ahead. Through their daily efforts, they are able to provide a better future for their children. The business activities of the members are as follows: selling potatoes, selling vegetables, selling milk and cheese, fattening cattle, selling chicken, selling maize, selling food, raising small animals, and providing services such as automobile maintenance.

Sra. Nelida (who has her hand raised in the photo) is a member who is married and has three children. Her main business activity is selling chicken and fish. She has been in this business for several years and is doing very well thanks to the effort she puts into her work. Nelida is taking this opportunity to request a loan for buying merchandise, such as chicken and fish.
