1º De Noviembre Group's story

The "1º de Noviembre" communal bank was formed by 15 enterprising ladies. They are modest and hard-working women who seek a better future for themselves and their families.

María Zunilda, the chairperson, sells second-hand clothing as a street vendor. She says that her work involves a great deal of sacrifice, but that all of the effort she makes is to give her family everything that they need.

She is requesting the loan in order to buy second-hand clothing, with which she will be able to continue selling, and helping her family.

In this group: María Zunilda, Wilma, Raquel, Maria Magdalena, Elena, Delia, Leonidas, Bernardina, Maria Angela, Gregoria, Lucila, Teodolina, Carmen, Antonia, Claudelina
