Manantial - 26 Group's story

MANANTIAL - 26 group has eight members - five are women and three are men. The group president is Celestina who is 56 years old and has two children who are 21 and 28. Celestina sells candy at the local fair. This loan will be the fifth that she has received from the institution.

Celestina will use this loan to buy a variety of candies to stock up her business, as well as a counter to display her products. In this way she will be able to offer her customers more variety.

She is requesting this loan to continue improving her business, and Celestina is going to use the profits she makes to buy more products and therefore increase her income. She would like to have her own store and be able to offer better customer service.

Celestina is a very hard-working person, and she feels happy about the opportunity that her and the members of the group are being given because many of them support their families on their own.

In this group: Celestina, Francisco, Esperanza, Rita, Jesusa, Marco Antonio, Ana Rosa, Sergio
