A loan of $3,675 helped a member to buy new clothes to sell.


Los Cisnes Group's story

Teresa is a member of the Communal Bank Los Cisnes in Castro. She can be seen in the photo at the back in the middle, with a broad smile and dressed in black. The most important lines of business in this organization are the sale of second-hand clothes, cloth, groceries, imitation jewelrey and vegetables.

Teresa has been selling American clothes for almost a year. She started out of necessity, but when she started things went quite well, although she has had hard days when she has not sold anything. The loan she is asking for is to buy new clothes because she has customers who have been asking for it. It is a great challenge for her and she hopes that she will enjoy success with the sale of new clothes. What she has liked the most about working alongside Fondo Esperanza is the support and help that she has been offered.
