A loan of $3,350 helped a member to buy perfume at wholesale.


Fantasticas - 32 Group's story

The “Fantásticas-32” communal bank has 8 members, seven women and one man. The bank president is Marisol, 29. She has a five-year-old son and she works selling perfume. She has had a perfume shop in the Cala Cala zone for a year. It’s not a very long time but she’s happy because she already has a good clientele. This loan is her second sequence in the institution and Marisol will use the loan to buy perfume at wholesale in order to have a wide variety available for her customers since demand is higher during the end-of-year season because many people buy perfume to give away as Christmas gifts and she wants to take advantage of this demand to generate higher income.
