Toro Blanco Group's story

The Toro Blanco communal bank is made up of 12 female members who are neighbors in the same community. The women are hardworking and of a humble origin, at the same time, they fight for a better future for themselves and their family. The members of the communal bank are united, enterprising and responsible.

One of the members, Carmen owns a store where she sells cleaning products in general, basic foodstuffs such as bakery products, noodles, rice, mate drinks and products which come in tins such as corn, tuna, etc. The loan being sought would be to buy a large volume of goods to then sell them at a fair and accessible price and thereby increase the number of customers and products offered.
