Los Tajibos Group's story

The "Los Tajibos" Entrepreneurial Bank is made up of nine members, seven of whom are women and two men. The bank's president is Aida, situated on the right hand side in the orange blouse. She is 51 years old and has three grown children. She makes a living selling cosmetics and footwear by catalog, which she carries out by visiting nearby homes and offices in the city of Santa Cruz.

This loan is her first with the institution. She will use it to buy cosmetics and footwear at wholesale and discount prices in order to offer her customers a variety of products and increase her earnings. Her reason for requesting this loan is to continue improving her business. Aida will use her earnings to continue buying a variety of beauty products. She is a very hard working person and is pleased with the opportunity brought forth to her and her group members because some of them must care for their families on their own. Two of the borrowers have been added to the photo that were not in the group photo.

In this group: Aida, Antonia, Maria Del Carmen, Maggy, Alcides Andres, Gustavo, Liz Amparo, Pura Mirian, Teresa
