A loan of $3,500 helped a member to do maintenance work on motorcycle taxis.

El Sol De Cupiche Group's story

This is the "Sol de Cupiche" communal bank, which is starting its 7th loan cycle. The eight people who are in it have proved to be responsible and supportive towards their fellow members. On this occasion, the featured member is Angélica. She's 35 years old and her family is comprised of herself, her husband and two underage children. Angélica rents out motorcycle taxis. She started this business because her husband travels abroad, and therefore he was the one who supported her in buying said motorcycles. At the age of 35, Angélica has achieved some of her goals, such as improving her home and owning four motorcycle taxis, as she currently does. She feels proud because through her work she's able to keep on supporting her household expenses. She'll use this latest loan to do maintenance work on her motorcycle taxis. Her next goal is to buy a car, which she would offer for transportation services. The "Sol de Cupiche" group is glad to know that people from other countries cooperate with their progress. In the photo, Angélica is standing in the back. She's the third one from the right, wearing a lead-colored jacket.
