A loan of $3,925 helped a member to purchase quilts in bulk.


Sol De Oro Group's story

The "Sol de Oro" (Golden Sun) communal bank is made up of nine members: seven women and two men. They all make a living by working in various activities.

The president of the group is Cristina, who is the one in the photo wearing a black sweater and a red blouse. She is 57 years old and makes a living by selling quilts on credit. She sells them by visiting public institutions and private markets in the city to offer her products. This is her second loan with this institution.

Cristina will use the benefits to continue to improve her business. Her dream for her business is to be able to stock up on a variety of products since she has many sales and needs to capitalize on this to improve her income. She is grateful for this opportunity that she has received from the granting of this loan.

In this group: Ximena Rosmery, Juan Manuel, Maria Luisa, Cristina Virginia, Veronica Elizabet, Esperanza Adriana, Andrea Valery, Amador Rodrigo, Katherine Yosara
