71-24 De Septiembre Group's story

The group 71- 24 De Septiembre is comprised of 9 women and the president of the group is Balbina. Balbina is 40 years old and she is single. She has three children that are 15, 12, and 8 years old. She sells food in her shop that is located in Joronchito. This loan is her fourth loan. Balbina will use this loan to buy ingredients such as rice, noodles, meat, and eggs so that she can prepare her dishes. She is seeking this loan because she doesn't have any cash. Balbina faces challenges in her business such as being able to buy ingredients so that she can make her delicious dishes and offer a variety of those dishes to her customers. She uses her income to buy ingredients for her business, and in time she is able to earn more income. Balbina is a hard-working person and the sole provider for her family (this is the only business that supports her family). She is happy for the opportunity that is being offered to her and to the others in her group, because many of them are also the sole providers for their families as well.

In this group: Blanca Yalily, Maria Ester, Maria Luisa, Balbina, Zobeida, Reina, Mariela, Carmela, Josefa
