Las Chicas De San Fernando Group's story

Las Chicas de San Fernando is an established communal bank. Its members have made their payments on time for the seven loan cycles they have been in business. María Guadalupe, 54, is a mature, married woman with three children, ages 29, 27, and 15. She sells catalog merchandise. Previously, she had a grocery store that she had to close for personal reasons. Now she wants to restock it, and the loan will help her fulfill her dream to reopen the store.
