A loan of $2,575 helped a member to buy soft drinks, vegetables, fruits, and other items to stock her store.

San Francisco Group's story

The “San Francisco” communal bank was formed when several neighbors from the city of Santaní joined together. They all have a great sense of responsibility and work hard to get ahead.

Each of them works in different businesses. Luisa is one of the members. She is a single mother of 2 children. She has a store where she sells all types of products, snacks, and cooked cassava to support and educate her children. She works hard to give them what she can. She is a single woman, but she works hard for her children.

She is requesting this loan to buy products for her business, such as soft drinks, vegetables, fruits, and other items so that she can supply her store and continue giving a good variety to her customers.
