Sin Fronteras Group's story

Sin Fronteras (Without Borders) communal bank is made up of eight members, five women and three men. The chair of the bank is Deisy. Deisy, 28, has two children, ages 4 and 10. She works selling lunch at her stand in Santa Rita. This is her first loan from the institution. Deisy will use the loan to buy wholesale ingredients, such as groceries and vegetables to make her dishes. Her reason for asking for this loan is the lack of money to buy ingredients. Deisy confronts challenges in her business, such as the climate conditions and the competition of other businesses. This is why she has to try to reduce her costs and improve the seasoning of her dishes. She is going to use the profits to buy utensils and also to attract more customers during peak lunch hours. Deisy is a very hard-working person. She is glad for this opportunity given through the credit.
