Trece Belen Group's story

The 20 members of Trece Belen Communal Bank are all from the San Lorenzo area. All are very responsible and hardworking mothers. They always meet to resolve any little problem in the group, and they also help their community. This is why they are always recognized. Martina is the president. She tells us that she always tries to motivate her friends to continue to struggle and not give up on their ideals. Martina has sold milk for some time. She tells us that she already has very good customers who always buy products from her. She is a very self-sacrificing person because every day she works distributing her milk from a very early hour. She is requesting the loan to buy more milk because she does not want to be without her essential product to sell. She is grateful for the help that she and her friends in the group always receive.
