A loan of $400 helped to do maintenance on her car like an oil change.


Valentina's story

The member belongs to the communal bank "MADRES TRABAJADORAS". She makes a living selling calling services both local and international. She does this going from town to town and because of this business she is able to spend more time with her children as it is her own business. This is one of the motivations she loves most about what she does. Her family also relies on their car which serves as a taxi business - her husband being the driver. She is seeking a loan to do maintenance on the car like an oil change. She is grateful for this loan and promises to repay in a timely manner.
