Las Triunfadoras De Canto Grande Group's story

Vanessa is 27; she is married and has one son who is still depends on her. Together with her husband, she has been selling and repairing furniture for the last ten years, a business which they have named ‘YONJIN’ in honour of their first son. She started out with the idea of acquiring land and building her house. With effort and work she has succeeded in building her house and has been able to open her own business. Currently her income goes to covering the gas, electric and telephone bills; whilst her husband covers food costs. Her plan for the future is to finish the second floor of her house and buy a car. She used the loan to buy raw material for the carpentry. Vanessa belongs to ‘Las Triunfadoras de Canto Grande’ communal bank, which is made up of 7 people and was given that name due to the area in which the members live being called Canto Grande. She has held the position of president for the last 4 months.
