Biznaga (Flat) Group's story

The communal bank is called Biznaga and is made up of four people, two women and two men who sell fruits and vegetables individually in an area called Miguel Hidalgo.

Blanca Flor is a widow and has seven children who are all married, she is a grandmother to twenty grandchildren who make her very happy.

She needs a loan to buy and sell ground coffee since she also accompanies her grandchildren and daughter to sell fruits and vegetables. She has had her business for four years and is doing well; it has allowed her to get ahead.

Blanca Flor began her work when she was alone and decided to get a job that would give her an income to help her have a better life.

She wishes to see her business grow and the loan will help her keep working until God gives her life.

The people who are part of the communal bank are Saúl, he will buy fruits and vegetables, Araceli will buy pepper to sell later on by the kilogram and Don José María who will buy fabrics to make clothing.

In this group: Blanca Flor, Saúl, Araceli, José María
