Santa Catalina Group's story

The Santa Catalina communal bank, with 18 members, is in its fourth cycle. This is thanks to the fact that all of them are working arduously. They are getting ahead, and with this work they are helping their families.

Juliana is a very hard-working person, and she always struggles to get ahead and give everything to her family. She sells ice-cream and juices. It is going very well for her, and she has good clientele. During this season she has more sales, it is going even better.

She is requesting the loan to buy all flavors of ice cream. This way her place will be well stocked, and she will be able to continue giving her customers what they want.
