A loan of $1,350 helped a member to buy used clothing.

Virgen De Fatima Group's story

The Virgen de Fátima communal bank has 10 members in their second loan cycle. All are hardworking and modest women. The bank is located in the Virgen de Fátima neighborhood, which is why the bank has that name.

One of these women is Basilia. She makes a living selling used clothing, with which she has the means necessary to support her family and give them what they need.

Her goal is to have many more garments to offer to her customers, so she's requesting this loan to be able to invest in buying all types of clothing for resale.

In this group: Josefina, Juana, Mirian, Elena, Myrian, Marta, Basilia, María, Teresa, Dorcas
