Reina De La Paz Group's story

The “Reina de la Paz” comunal bank was formed by the joining together of friends and neighbors in the city of Santaní. They are heads of households who have decided to help their families through their work.

Toribia is a member of the group and tells us that she has managed to succeed through a great deal of sacrifice and effort. Her hair salon business has helped her give her family what they need, and that way improve their income and standard of living. She says that she has a very good clientele, as she always attends to her customers well, and provides them with a good service.

Toribia is applying for the loan to buy hair coloring, hairspray, rollers, scissors, combs and other supplies, in order to supply her business and continue offering a good service to her customers.
