Guapuru 2012 Group's story

The GUAPURU 2012 communal bank is made up of ten members, eight ladies and two gentlemen who have different businesses. Carmen serves and the group’s president and is the first one to the left of the photograph, wearing a white top. She is 39 years old, married, and has three children ages 4 and 7. She has been making empanadas for some time. She is asking for this loan so she can buy supplies. Carmen is a responsible client who has been working with us for some time. She will use these benefits to improve her and her family’s quality of life. She wants to expand her business so that she can generate more earnings as this is her only source of income to support herself and her family. Carmen is grateful to the institution for the support.
