A loan of $3,900 helped a member working capital.

Tropical Group's story

The Tropical Communal Bank is represented by Mrs. Jenny. The members already have experience with supportive groups, as most of them were part of the last loan they received. There were some late payments, but the spirit of the most responsible people of the group helped keep them going and they were not defeated by a bad experience. Now they are confronting a new challenge and feel capable of continuing to work with the communal bank. All of the members are mothers dedicated to selling various products such as clothing, cosmetics, food, condiments, soft drinks, vegetables, and seasonable products. Some have permanent sales stalls and others are street vendors. This loan will be used to buy ingredients and materials, in particular for the Christmas season, which is when the market is the busiest and sells the most products.
