A loan of $3,125 helped a member to buy seasonal fruit.

Los Consentidos Group's story

Los Consentidos Communal Bank is made up of nine members, six women and three men. The president of the bank is Fidelia. She's 29 years old and has four children, ages 2, 5, 9, and 15. She makes a living selling seasonal fruit. This season she's selling bananas but the mango harvest is coming; she buys it directly from the grower.

She's requesting this loan to buy seasonal fruit.

Fidelia faces challenges in her business such as getting out of poverty. She's going to use the profits to improve her quality of life and her family's. Her dream for her business is to be one of the best merchants and to grow in her business to generate more income.

She feels happy and is grateful to the institution for their support of her and her colleagues who in many cases support their families alone.

In this group: Fabian, Jimena, Cristina, Fidelia, Yoselin, Martha, Girlene, Ariel, Luis Alfredo
