A loan of $325 helped a member to buy bread to sell.


Duo Esperanza De Santiago Group's story

The communal bank, Dúo Esperanza de Santiago, includes Alicia, who is married and has a son. Her husband is a carpenter and she sells bread for a living every day of the week, mornings and afternoons. She opens early at 6:00 a.m. and closes at 9:00 p.m. Her shop is near the municipal market of Santiago Sac and earns a good profit.

Alicia wants to renovate the shop where she also sells stuffed peppers twice a week. Se takes advantage of the different seasons and her location to vary the product she has on offer in addition to bread. She is requesting a loan to buy bread wholesale to improve sales and help her family.
