Flor De Copihue Group's story

Ana María, appearing to the left of the photo, wearing a calipso sweater, with short hair, and a bag, is a member of the Flor de Copihue communal bank, from the city of Valdivia. The members of the communal bank work with pastries, fast food, and new and used clothing sales. Ana María sells fast food and started doing this six years ago. She started with a friend who didn’t help very much, so she decided to go out on her own. Things went well for her and she has been able to provide lunches and get paid later.

She needs this loan so she can sell cheese empanadas. She expects things to go well for her because she has a large demand for empanadas and she needs money. What she likes most is that she is able to work with the fund. Hope is the wonderful thing that has helped and supported those who really need a financial push to move their businesses ahead.
