Chimba - 32 Group's story

The community bank CHIMBA – 32 is comprised of ten members, six of whom are women and four of whom are men.

The president of the bank is Marco. He is 33 years old and has made his living as a chauffeur for quite some time. He has a little boy who is 10 years old and studying in school.

This is his first loan with this institution. He will use the funds for maintenance and to buy accessories for his vehicle. He needs this loan as he lacks working capital, and he relies on this vehicle in order to do his job. He supports his family with the income he generates. He is happy and grateful for the support this institution is giving him.
