Existosas Group's story

The communal bank "EXISTOSAS" is composed of eight members, all of them women. The group's members work in different activities. The bank's president is Ms. Celida, who in the photo is wearing a brown blouse. She is 31 years old and has two children, aged 8 and 12. Her work is selling sandwiches and packed lunches from her sales stand. Celida gets up early in the morning to prepare her sandwiches and also to make lunch for her family. After this, she goes out to sell her products during the morning. With the funds from the loan, Celida will buy supplies to prepare her packed lunches. Celida is a responsible and hard-working person. She is grateful to the institution for the economic support provided to her so that she can have a better quality of life and continue getting ahead for the well-being of her family.
