3 De Abril Group's story

The Entrepreneurial Bank Third of April is made up of 8 members, 7 women and 1 man, who work performing different activities. The president of the bank is Maribel, who is seated and wearing the pink t-shirt in the photo. Maribel is 37 years old and she has three children who are in school. She is a stylist. She visits homes to complete her work because she still does not have her own salon. Her clients know her and she is not lacking work because her work is high quality. She seeks the loan to buy hairstyling materials such as creams for hair, dyes, etc. to perform her work. Maribel is a very hardworking person. Her wish is to have her own beauty salon in order to increase her quantity of clients and to provide improved comfort to her clients. She is happy and thankful to the bank for the support it is providing to her.
