Banco Mujer Camino Al Sol Group's story

Xinia, 39, is treasurer of the “Camino al Sol” (Road to the Sun) communal bank. She’s married with three children. She lives with her husband, youngest daughter and grandson. She’s such an enterprising woman that she’s always looked for ways to help her family and to help her husband with household expenses.

Her activity is making toasted banana chips. She has the utensils needed to make it and her investment plan is to buy building supplies to improve the toaster and increase production.

She’s had three previous loans and they made it possible for her to buy what she currently owns. Xinia has many plans for the future like helping with her youngest daughter’s schooling, expanding the business and increasing production. She also wants to have her fellow group members become members of the toaster generating additional income that way for all seven of her companions who also carry out commercial activities.
