A loan of $3,450 helped a member to buy dairy products, baked goods, meats and soft drinks.

San Antonio Group's story

The San Antonio communal bank is made up of 16 women, who do various kinds of work according to the means of each. With the skills they have, they are doing their best to raise their respective families.

Laura has two children and has set up her own small grocery store, where she sells basic household products and also necessary items for cleaning and personal hygiene.

For this undertaking, Laura has the help of her two children, so she hopes the business grows and becomes increasingly competitive in terms of price and quality.

She is requesting the loan to buy merchandise such as dairy products, baked goods, drinks, fruits, vegetables, etc.
