Las Semillas De San Francisco Group's story

Amalia who is seated on the right side wearing a white coat in the photo belongs to the “Las Semillas de San Francisco” (San Francisco Seeds) communal bank located in Concepción VIII Region, Chile. All the members of this communal bank are in the same line of work, sales, but they sell different things like: clothes, charcoal, potatoes, fruit, textiles, shower curtains, fish and vegetables.

Amalia sells women’s accessories. She started this business more or less a year ago and started out selling clothes but in time came to realize that it was much better to sell women’s accessories and even more so those focused on women’s hair. She’s had no problems in her business which makes her very happy.

The loan she’s requesting is to buy more merchandise like perfume, make-up and hair accessories to sell. She’s very happy because she knows she’ll do well in this new cycle. What she most emphasizes about being able to work with Fondo Esperanza is being able to meet more people and share much more with her group this way.

In this group: Ana Delia, Minidit Yaneth, Macarena Andrea, Johanna Del Carmen, Johana Gloria, Nolfa Del Carmen, Paola Andrea, Joseline Jessenia, Miriam Antonia, Lidia Hortensia Del Carmen, Maria Elizabeth, Cecilia Andrea, Myriam De Lourdes, Katherine Macarena, Benedicta Carmen, Amalia Rosalia, Jose Alejandro, Nanci Del Carmen
