The communal bank "Sayhua" is well organized and comprised of people who are always looking for opportunities to get ahead. With their daily effort, they are looking to give their children a better future. Most members are involved in sales of food, basic products, vegetables, and furniture.

Beatriz is still in the communal bank and raising small animals like guinea pigs. She has had the business of raising animals for several years, and it is going great thanks to the effort she puts into her work. At this time Beatriz wishes to buy merchandise like guinea pigs.

The members are grateful for the opportunity given to them, and they pledge to make their payments on time. (Leonor is a passive member of the group).
