Mi Dios Es Mi Fortaleza Group's story

The “Mi Dios es Mi Fortaleza” (My God Is My Strength) communal bank’s members are: Claudia, Basilisa, Matilde, Thelma, Neuda, Socorro, Juana, Silvia, Mercedes, Filomena and Benita.

These entrepreneurs have different work tools but they’ve shown themselves to be responsible, hardworking with a strong drive for self-improvement.

For example, Juana’s economic activity is crafts. The reason for the loan is to buy watercolors, brushes and clay to make crafts.

Another group member is Claudia who owns a grocery store located at home that allows her to meet her obligations and provide what’s necessary for her home.

The reason for the loan is to buy basic staple items like rice, sugar, oil, soap, detergent, salt, ‘tiste’ [ground cocoa powder mixed with corn], ice and matches among others.

In this group: Claudia Esther, Basilisa, Matilde Del Socorro, Thelma, Neuda Lucia , Ventura Del Socorro, Juana Patricia , Silvia De Los Angeles , Natividad Mercedes , Octasis Filomena*, Benita Elieth*
