4 De Mayo Group's story

The 4 DE MAYO communal bank is comprised of nine members. There are six women and three men. All of them work at different business activities. Anahí is the president of the bank. She is 28 years old, and has two children, ages ten and eight. She sells various items, domestic appliances, cell phones, chargers, and accessories, etc. She lives in the Villa Nuevo Potosí area.

This loan is the first cycle within the institution. She is going to use the loan to buy accessories for cell phones wholesale. Her reason for requesting this loan is that she has orders from her customers.

Anahí faces the challenge in her business of not having capital. She will use the profits for the growth of her business. Her wish is for her business to have more revenue and to financially support her family. This way she will improve her quality of life.
