El Banquito Del Ahorro Group's story

Esther is a member of the group El Banquito Del Ahorro. Esther is separated and lives with her three children who are now adults. She is the president of the group and this is her second cycle together. Esther has a restaurant; she learned the job from her parents who had a restaurant when she was very young. It was there where she learned everything about the business. She inaugurated her own restaurant 38 years ago, where she currently works. The location of her business is good because there are a lot of factories around the place and the workers come daily to eat the food she prepares.

Her loan will be very useful for her because she wants to start another fast food business and needs to adapt another space in her house. With the loan she will buy some tables and chairs that are needed. In the future, she would like her restaurant to become one of the best. One of her daughters is studying gastronomy and she wants her to continue with her dreams. Esther is grateful to all the investors for supporting her in the business.
