San Juan Group's story

To form the communal bank, one of the members invited her friends and neighbors, and that is how the group called "San Juan" came about. They are in their 15th loan cycle, with 21 members.

Teodosia is a member of the group. She is a hairdresser and says that she has a very good clientele, as she does very good work. She began with very little, but is succeeding thanks to the work she does.

She is requesting the loan in order to buy supplies for her hair salon, such as shampoo, rinses, gel, hair coloring, and other items, so that she can continue working and giving her customers good service

In this group: Maria Graciela, Teodosia, Margarita, Leonidas, Jorgelina, Ermelinda, Maria, Sara, Epifania, Nilda, Norma, Nancy, Rosalina, Nancy, Isabel, Nilsa, Julia, Noelia, Bricelda, Mayna, Lourdes*
