Uno Group's story

The Enterprising Bank UNO is made up of eight members; six women and two men. The president of the bank is Rosalía (in the photo she is the first on the left wearing a green shirt and a grey purse). She is 32 years old and has two children ages 6 and 13. She sells cosmetics through catalogues. She is a street vender and sells her products visiting homes and public and private offices in Santa Cruz where she offers her products. This is her first loan sequence in the institution.

Rosalía will use the loan to purchase cosmetics and jewellery wholesale and on sale and in this way be able to provide various products to her customers and increase her earnings. Her reason for requesting this loan is to improve her business. Rosalía will use the profits to continue buying various beauty products. Rosalía is a young person who works hard. She is happy for the opportunity given to her and her colleagues in the group as some support their families alone.

In this group: Rosalia, Deysi, Maria Teresa, Rafael, Eliana, Bianca Yahil, Herman, Magdalena
