Jerusalem Group's story

The Jerusalem bank of entrepreneurship is made of eight members, seven women and one man. All of them are engaged in different activities.

The president of the bank is Martha, who is 27 years old with a two year old child. She earns her living making clothing. She lives in the Corazón de Jesús zone, where her workshop is.

This loan is the first cycle in the microfinance institution. She is going to use this loan to buy fabric in bulk. Her reason for asking for this loan is that she has orders from her clients.

Martha faces a challenge in her business, which is a lack of capital. She will use the benefits for growing her business. Her wish is for her business to have better income and to support her family economically, improving their quality of life.
