Los Pagadores 2012 Group's story

The 'LOS PAGADORES 2012' community bank has eleven members: eight women and three men. The bank president is Verónica, who lives in Los Lotes. In the photo, she is the lady wearing a light green top. She is the only woman standing up in the line of men. She is 38 years old and has two children who are 8 and 5 years old. They are both school age.

Verónica's business is selling sausages, ham and bologna. She sells these products from a sales location in her neighborhood. This loan is her fifth from the institution. Verónica will use her loan to buy sausages and cold cuts wholesale. This will increase her working capital. She is requesting the loan so that she can continue improving her business. Verónica will use the profits she makes to continue buying cold cuts so that she can continue improving her income. Her wish for her business is to have a very well-stocked store so that she can provide her customers with a wider range of products. Verónica is a very hard-working person. She feels happy that she and her fellow group members are receiving this opportunity as many of them support their families on their own.
