Las Joyitas Group's story

Las Joyitas Communal Bank is made up of 10 members, all women.

The president of the bank is Silvia, 37. She's married and has three school-age children. She earns a living selling construction materials such as parquet for floors. She has a store located in the 16 de Julio area.

This is Silvia's first loan sequence with the institution. She's going to use it to buy construction material to stock her store. She's requesting this loan to continue improving in her job. Silvia's going to use the profits to buy tiles and parquet to continue stocking her business.

Silvia's a very hardworking person. She's happy about the opportunity of being granted the loan because this is her only activity that allows her to support herself.
