San Luis Group's story

The SAN LUIS entrepreneurial bank is made up of 12 members, nine ladies and three gentlemen. Edith is the bank’s president. She’s 52 years old and has adult children on their own. Edith sells cosmetics through catalogs and makes her sales on foot, visiting homes and public and private offices in Santa Cruz, where she offers her products. This will be her first loan through the institution and Edith will use it to buy cosmetics and jewelry in quantity. It’s currently on sale and in this way she will be able to offer a greater variety of products to her customers and also increase her income. She is asking for this loan so that she can continue improving her business. Edith will use the benefits to continue buying beauty products. She is a very hardworking person and is happy about the opportunities given her and her fellow group members who in some cases must support their families alone.
