Don Bosco Group's story

Isabel is a member of the 'Don Bosco' community bank. This bank has nine members who are mostly neighbors living in the same area. 29-year-old Isabel lives with her partner and two dependent children. Her current business is selling candies and food in a school near her town. Thanks to this business, she is able to support her partner with their household expenses. The money that she makes is very helpful to her as she is able to help her children with their education. Isabel is an entrepreneurial mother whose goal is to study for a technical degree in cosmetology and set up her own beauty salon. She will use the loan that she requested to buy soda, chocolates, candies, etc. to sell to her customers. Isabel and the other members of the 'Don Bosco' community bank are grateful for the loan they have been given.
