A loan of $2,400 helped a member to buy fabric and thread.


1 De Marzo Group's story

The 1° de Marzo communal bank was formed by several neighbors in the city of Santaní. All the members of the bank work in independent activities such as raising animals, dressmaking, and teaching.

Bernardina makes dresses, blankets, and school uniforms. She says that, thanks to her good work, she already has well established customers. She and her colleagues formed a very close group that's capable of working together to strengthen their camaraderie.

Bernardina's requesting this loan to buy fabric and thread to continue with her clothing and fill her customers' orders.

In this group: Claudia, Jorgelina, Laura, María, Bernardina, Antonia, Gladys, Guadalupe, Arsenia, Amalia, Tiburcia, Petrona*, Gladys*
