Banco Comunal Ii Group's story

Virginia is 51 years old, married, and has seven children. She did not have the opportunity to go to school. She makes a living selling vegetables in her town's plazas. She started this business with a small stall in the plaza and she now has 18 years of experience. She has the support of her husband who also works in the same business.

She has organized a group and is asking for a loan that she will use to buy merchandise consisting of vegetables such as: chayote (a type of squash), carrots, potatoes, onions, etc.

She hopes to expand her business in the future to the remaining plazas in her region. The other group members make a living selling meat, vegetables, potatoes, and running a general store.

In this group: Virginia, Lorenza, Eulogia, Vicenta, Santos, Estefana, Paula Pascual
