San Cayetano Group's story

The San Cayetano communal bank is made up of women who all live in the same neighborhood. The members of the group are very enthusiastic about the program. Because of that, they continue taking loans in a very responsible way in order to reinvest again in their businesses and also to help their families. One of the members, Francisca, sells staple goods such as fruit, vegetables, milk products, bread products, soft drinks, etc. The loan will be used to strengthen her business with the purchase of a greater quantity of merchandise in order to be able to grow and increase the business' sales.

In this group: Francisca, Digna, Daysi, Leticia, Yesica, Graciela, Patricia, Monica, Carmen, Selva, Petronila
