A loan of $2,575 helped a member to buy whole corn to make corn flour to sell.

Cristo Rey Group's story

The communal bank Cristo Rey is in its third loan cycle with the program, and its members are striving to get ahead. The women have great hopes of improving their lives and have come together to reach this goal.

Dominga, one of the members, works hard to help her family. She sells corn flour that she produces, a difficult job, but one she does enthusiastically because it provides income for her family. She has applied for a loan to buy corn to process and sell. She wants to grow and shows it day after day.
