Emprendedoras - 26 Group's story

The “Emprendedoras-26” communal bank is in its second sequence. They've had some membership changes because there were problems with the members that left the group but it was restructured and now has nine members: 8 women and 1 man. The bank’s president is Rosaicela, 33. She’s married and has three children aged 12, 8 and 6 years. She works making and selling a variety of stuffed toys. Her workshop is located in the Tembladerani zone. Rosaicela will use the loan to buy raw materials like fabric at wholesale and plastic eyeballs to make the toys. Her reason for requesting the loan is the lack of cash and she will use profits to save up to buy a bigger house and to have a profitable business.

In this group: Noemy Edith, Maria Jose, Rosaicela Wara, Felisa, Lady Laura, Juan Pastor, Veronica, Lidia Helen, Beatriz Consuelo
