Buenas Emprendedoras - 26 Group's story

Buenas Emprendedoras--26 Communal Bank is made up of nine members, six women and two men who make a living in different jobs. The president of the bank is Emma, 47. She earns a living in dressmaking and sewing garments by hand. Her shop is in the Pasankeri area.

This loan is Emma's first sequence with the institution. She's going to use it to buy fabric, thread, and other supplies for her business. She's requesting the loan because she lacks the cash she needs to grow in her business.

This is a challenge in her business because demand rises during this season and she has to work more to earn more income. She's going to use the profits to continue buying materials and supplies for her business, so it will grow. This way she'll have a better quality of life.
