Senor De Mayo-31 Group's story

The entrepreneurship bank, Señor de Mayo-31, is made up of eight members: seven women and one man. The president of this bank is Susy, who is 40 years old, married, and has three children ages 1, 5, and 8. Two of her children are now in school. Susy makes a living from her cooking business. She cooks for special occasions such as weddings, baptisms, etc.

This is Susy's second loan from this lending institution. She will use it to buy a variety of kitchen utensils to help her cook during the busy season, full of weddings, promotions, and baptisms coming up. She is requesting this loan in order to continue to improve her business and keep it well-stocked. This will help her increase her profits.

Susy is a very hardworking woman. She is happy that she and the other group members have been offered this opportunity, since most of them are the only source of income to help their families get ahead.

In this group: Susy Daniela, Kinski Yolanda, Ruth Tania, Soledad Carola, Orlando, Victoria, Silvia Marisol, Evania
