Semillas - 26 Group's story

The "Semillas-26" communal bank is composed of 10 members: seven women and three men. The chair of the bank is Christian, who is 19 years old. He sells a variety of jams made from natural fruit. He sells his products door-to-door, visiting public and private institutions, different neighborhoods and homes, offering his products.

This loan is his first with the institution. Christian is going to use this loan to buy products in bulk so that he can have them in stock for his business. His reason for requesting this loan is to have a variety of products to satisfy his customers. Christian faces challenges in his business such as serving his customers efficiently. He is going to use the profits to improve his family's quality of life, as this is the only business that allows him to support himself and succeed on his own.

In this group: Maria Eugenia, Maria Del Carme, Christian, Kharen, Sonia, Ana Karina, Eva Exalta, Isaac Elmadam, Arturo, Yecseny Ilcen
