A loan of $4,350 helped a member to buy flour and butter to make pastries.

San Cristobal - 26 Group's story

The communal bank San Cristobal-26 is made up of 9 members: 6 women and 3 men. The president of the bank is Florentina. She is 48 years old and makes small cakes and pastries. She will use the money from the loan to buy flour and butter to make her pastries. She sells her products at different stands. Her dream is to be able to eventually open a bakery so that she can offer her products to her customers, since many who know her buy her products because they are delicious.

Florentina is a very hardworking person. She is happy for the opportunity given to her and the members of the group, since many of them are the sole breadwinners of their families.

In this group: Cristina, Florentina Josefina, Laura Adelia, Milton Eloy, Mario, Araceli, Silvia Susy, Luis, Estefany
