A loan of $2,975 helped a member to pay for repairs of his vehicle that he uses in his passenger transport service.


Violetas-31 Group's story

The communal bank Violetas - 31 is made up of eight members, six women and two men.

The president of the bank is René. He is 66 years old and has a son who is 16 years old. René has been working in passenger transport for quite some time and he says that, “I've been a driver all my life.”

This loan is his first sequence with the institution. René will use this loan to repair his vehicle. His reason for asking for this loan is that his vehicle needs repair and he is unable to efficiently carry on his work. This vehicle is his only means of working and the income that it generates supports his family.

René feels happy and grateful to the institution for its support.

In this group: Petrona, Rene Alberto, Cristina, Juana, Edgar, Selfa Gabriel, Dominga , Carla
