Santa Rosa De Lima Group's story

Greetings! Introducing “Santa Rosa de Lima”, a Communal Bank composed of 7 hardworking people who have succeeded in progressing in life thanks to their efforts, aiming at granting a better standard of living to their families. This is the case of Jaqueline, the treasurer of the group, a task she has responsibly carried out. Thanks to her great efforts and to her husband’s help, Jaqueline has succeeded in making one of her dreams come true: to have a shop of her own. She has been running a general store for more than 4 years, selling basic necessities to neighbors of her area, who constitute the majority of her customers. Thanks to this activity she has succeeded in granting herself a certain economic stability. She will use this new loan she is requesting to invest it in her activity by buying snacks, mineral water and fizzy drinks. What she wants the most is to see her children become professionals. The “Santa Rosa de Lima” Group are grateful and they commit to keeping on working well. Jaqueline is 39 years old, she is married and she has 2 children who still depend economically on her. She is the third form the left, wearing a lilac sweater and brown trousers.

In this group: Esperanza Consuelo, Salbino Carnacion, Cipriana Nelly, Rosalina Rosaura, Jaqueline Enma, Angela Marielena, Berenice Nathaly
