Don Bosco Group's story

Isabel is a member of the “Don Bosco” communal bank, where she has been participating for more than a year. The group is made up of 8 members, who are known for being responsible and enterprising people. Isabel is 30 years old and separated, with two minor children. Isabel works selling snacks and refrigerated items at a school. She started this business selling outside the school, and she saved up as much as she could from her work in order to rent a stand within the school complex, since her best customers were students and teachers from this institution. She feels happy, since thanks to her hard work, she has been able to support her children. She will use her most recent loan to buy supplies such as breads, gelatines, snacks, etc. Her greatest desire is to buy herself a house of her own, since at the moment she is only renting. Isabel is shown in the back row of the photo; she is the first on the left dressed in a pink jacket. In the upper area on the left is Yene.

In this group: Maura, Mirian Blanca, Yene Cristina, Paulina, Maria Antonia, Freddy Emilio*, Isabel, Conrado Marcelo
