San Isidro Group's story

The communal bank "San Isidro" is comprised of 20 hard-working, enterprising women who are in their first loan cycle. They all work and help each other get ahead since all of them form part of the farming community in the area.

They are taking the poverty elimination survey, where 7 members are below the poverty line. One of the members, Flordelina, sells farm products and all kinds of food products. When she can, she sells anything, even clothing or shoes. As you can see, she is a very hard-working person who struggles for her family so she can give them everything they need so they will not go without anything.

Her goal is to continue growing to improve her income. Flordelina is requesting a loan to buy food supplies and also some clothing. She is grateful for this opportunity for her and her family.
