San Vicente Group's story

The communal bank "San Vicente" was put together by several neighbors of Santaní, a remote city with difficult access and poor safety conditions. The group is in its fourth cycle and the members all help each other to improve their lifestyles.

Felicita is a member of the group and sells a variety of clothing for a living. She says business is getting better and better because she always has orders from customers. She is a very hard worker who dreams about giving her family everything she was unable to have so they will not be lacking for anything.

She is requesting a loan to buy clothing such as capri pants, shirts, pants, bermudas and other items so she will have inventory and be able to offer a wide variety of goods to her customers. She is grateful for the help she and her friends are receiving.

In this group: Fanny, Lucrecia, Nadia, Angelina, Idalina, Silvia, Ramona, Estanislaa, Leonarda, Isabel, Virginia, Nancy, Eulalia, Juana, Raquel, Felicita, Zunilda, Zunilda*, Celia*, Florencia*, María*
