San Francisco Group's story

San Francisco is a communal bank in Luque that has 18 members. All the women are mothers who strive to give their families the things the women themselves did not have. Lilian is a teacher and street vendor. She also offers computers to rent and copy service in her house, a business her children manage. She is married to Vicente and has three children who are students. Lilian is applying for a loan to buy paper and ink and to maintain her equipment. She expects her business to continue to be successful, and she hopes her children keep studying and become good and useful members of society.
