A loan of $3,625 helped a member to buy merchandise.

Mujeres Virtuosas Group's story

Florentina is a widow and has nine children. Only one still depends on her, while the rest are independent. She makes a living selling gas from her home. She started this business with the idea of opening her own store. She also sells clothing.

She currently uses her income to cover her family's expenses and for working capital. Her plan for the future is to expand her business and finish construction on her house. She will use the loan to buy merchandise for her business.

Florentina belongs to the communal bank "Mujeres Virtuosas" ("Virtuous Women"), a group which formed 8 months ago and which is composed of 7 members. They decided on their name because all of the members are women and their greatest virtue is that of being mothers.

In this group: Florentina, Maria Rosa, Emi Soledad, Melva Livia, Ely Janet, Sarita, Silvia
