Punte Killman - 32 Group's story

The “Punte Killman-32” communal bank has 8 members; seven women and one man. The bank president is Martha, 40. She has seven children and has a car wash business at one of the bridges in the city of Cochabamba where cars are washed. This loan is her first sequence in the institution and Martha will use the loan to buy equipment and supplies like buckets, a vacuum cleaner and rags to dry the cars that she needs for her car wash business. Her reason for requesting this loan is to be able to buy supplies at wholesale. The business challenge Martha faces is competition because there are many people who wash cars near the bridges and she will use profits to improve her quality of life. He wish for her business is to have more car wash stands. Martha feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support provided by granting the loan since this is the only activity she has that makes it possible for her to support herself and her family.
