A loan of $2,325 helped a member to buy supplies to make cheese.

San Sebastian Group's story

The communal bank "San Sebastián" was formed by the union of a number of neighbors from the city of Santaní. All the members of the group are developing independent businesses.

Señora Adolfina makes cheese that she later goes out to sell in her community. She has very good customers, since she always makes products that are very good and that are ordered by many of her customers. She has great success due to the fact that she is very good at what she does and the customers like her a lot. She is applying for this loan to purchase supplies to continue making her cheeses and thus continue obtaining the means to continue helping her family.

In this group: Amalia, Ida, Celia, María, Alba, Silvia, Adolfina, Mirian, Yolanda, Patricia, Carmen, Leticia, Benefrida, Celina*
