A loan of $3,925 helped a member to buy furniture to sell.

Fortaleza Group's story

The communal bank "Fortaleza", comprised of 19 members, is in its fourth loan cycle. Each member has her own business activity, but they all are very supportive of each other and responsible.

The director is Mrs. Ramona, who was chosen by the group's members. She sells furniture for a living. Little by little she started her business, and thanks to her hard work it has grown into what is now a grand micro-business. Her goal is to keep expanding and continue supporting her family all she can.

She is requesting a loan to buy different kinds of furniture to continue her sales work.
