Niño Jesus Group's story

The communal bank Niño de Jesus is in its sixth loan cycle in the enterprising women’s program. They are from the city of San Lorenzo. They are all heads of their households who want to help their families through team work. For this reason they decided to band together and work together.

Ana is a member of this group. She sees herself as a very creative person who always knows what she needs to do to get ahead. She says that she does all kinds of handicrafts that she sells and with this income she supports her household and tries to cover all the day to day expenses. She says that she really likes what she does because she is very skilled.

Ana is requesting this loan to buy thread, needles, fabric, and canvas so she can continue making her crafts and providing for her family.

In this group: Ana, Regina, Griselda, Maria, Susana, Luisa, Luci, Porfiria, Fermina, Lilian, Esmilce, Teresa, Norma, Mariela
