A loan of $1,075 helped to buy flour, sugar, oil and honey.


Gregoria's story

Communal bank member Gregoria has a business of preparing and selling picarones (a dessert that is prepared from a sweet potato dough and is eaten with honey). She sells them as a walking vendor. She works from 4 pm to 10 pm. She has already had this business for 5 years, and it is going very well for her. Her dream is to have a shop where she can sell picarones. She is applying for the loan to buy flour, sugar, oil, and honey.

She is happy about the loan and promises to make her payments.
