La Perla Del Oriente Group's story

The communal bank "La Perla del Oriente" is made up of 12 members, including 11 women and 1 man. The president of the bank is Maria. Maria is 40 years old, and has a business making and selling bread from a bakery located in her house. This is Maria's first loan cycle with this institution. Maria will use this loan to buy flour in bulk to make a variety of breads. This way she will be able to provide better service to her customers and increase her earnings. The reason she is requesting this loan is so that she can continue to improve her business. Maria will use the profits to continue buying utensils and supplies for her bread-making business. Maria is a very hardworking person who feels happy about the opportunity being provided to her and her fellow group members, because some those members are the sole support of their families.
