A loan of $2,550 helped a member to maintain her vehicles.

San Francisco De Asis Group's story

Cristel is separated and has three children who are no longer dependent on their mother. Cristel has been a customer as "Edaprospo" for eight years and works in transport. She has two cars that she rents out. Cristel started this business when motivated by her family and on her own. Previously her only income was that of her husband and this was not enough to pay for all expenses at home. As a result Cristel decided to start this little business that helped her greatly to provide her children with a better quality of life. With effort and hard-work, Cristel has been able to cover some household costs, such as food, clothing, and utility bills. In the future Cristel would like her children to have their own business. At her business, Cristel would like to own more cars in order to expand her transport services.

Cristel will use this loan to pay to maintain her cars. Cristel is a member of the "San Francisco de Asis" (Saint Francis of Assisi, in English) communal bank. Cristel is president of this group, which has seven members. In the photo, Cristel is in the middle; she is standing up and wearing a purple jacket.

In this group: Valeriana*, Maria Dionisia, Vilma, Cristel Alejandrina, Violeta Fatima, Antonio, Felipe
