El Trebol Group's story

This group of women strives to move forward each day with great enthusiasm and dedication. There are five members that make up the Communal Bank “El Trebol”. They have the arduous task of working in their businesses in order to improve the quality of life for their families.

Such is the case with Sra. Luz, a 56-year-old mother of three children. One child is still under her care and reliant on her for education, food, and clothing. Sra. Luz sells newspapers each day. With the income from her business, she was able to move her family forward and purchase a piece of land. Later on, she will add a second floor with three rooms that she can make available for rent.

With this current loan, Luz will be able to continue operating her newsstand where she also sells candy. Just like the other members, she has a unique story, but they all share the enthusiasm and drive to succeed for the good and economic improvement of their businesses.

In this group: Luz Olinda, Maria Tereza, Vilma Rebeca, Hilda Esperanza, Laura
