A loan of $4,125 helped a member to buy vehicle accessories.

Venus - 32 Group's story

Venus-32 Communal Bank is made up of ten members, eight women and two men. This bank already has a loan with the institution. Some members have changed because there were some problems; only the responsible people stayed.

Abigail, 23, is still the president of the bank. She has a little boy who's three years old. Abigail's job for some time has been selling vehicle accessories. Her store's located in the Siles area, which is busy with drivers who are doing maintenance on their vehicles.

This is her second loan sequence with the institution. Abigail's going to use this loan to buy accessories and parts to stock her store. This way she'll offer better customer service and increase her profits.

She says it went well for her with the previous loan, which she also used to buy accessories because she always wants to stock her store with a variety of products. She's requesting this loan to continue improving her business. Abigail's going to use the profits to continue buying accessories.

Abigail's a very hardworking person. She's happy about the opportunity for herself and her group members because in some cases they support their families alone.

In this group: Rosa, Abigail, Mirtha Amalia , Alberto, Nemecia Silvia, Virginia, Jhoselyn, Lucas Justo, Shirley, Giovana Soraya
