Las Soñadoras Group's story

The communal bank LAS SOÑADORAS [The Dreamers] has eight members, six women and two men. The bank's president Ritha is 49 and has two children, ages 20 and 11. Ritha sells a variety of cooking utensils from her stand located in her neighborhood. This will be her first loan with the institution. She will use the loan to buy wholesale cooking utensils, thereby offering her customers a range of products and increasing her profits. She is requesting the loan so that she can keep improving her business and will use the profits to buy more merchandise. Ritha is a hardworking person and is happy to have this opportunity for herself and her group because in some instances the members are the sole providers for their families.

In this group: Ritha , Miguel Angel, Paola Lucia, Carlita, Cristian, Dora, Fabiola, Yeni
