Acuario Group's story

The Acuario communal bank is described as being a group with good work ideas and a lot of dedication. It is made up of seven members who live in the Vitarte district. One story in particular is that of Nelva. She is 61 years old, married and has three grown children. She has rented out rooms in her house for more than 18 years.She also has a car she rents for public transport. She started this work because she had a large house with a lot of empty rooms, so she decided to rent them out to make some income. With time and a lot of effort she has been able to furnish her home and obtain financial stability as well as pay for her children's educations. In the future, she would like to have a place where she sells car lubricants. I cannot conclude without mentioning that the hard work and dedication that each member of this group does for the financial wellbeing of his or her family.

In this group: Nelva, Rodolfo, Proselita, Yoni Noe, Raquel Elena*, Sergia, Alex Sixto
