A loan of $1,950 helped a member to buy merchandise: perfumes and jewellery.

Banco Mujer Kanéblapa Group's story

Albani is 48 years old, single and a mother to secondary school-aged children. Albani is a member of a women's communal bank and her group is looking to do better in life and to expand their businesses. Albani has had her business for many years. She has always been a single mother and has had to work to look after her family as she receives no support from the father of her children. Albani has fought alone to help her children to get ahead and to be able to study. She has had two loans from "Fundación Mujer" and is known for being responsible and paying back her loans. As with her previous loans, Albani will invest this loan in perfumes and jewellery. Her previous loans have been good for Albani, as she offers her customers good service and easy payment options.

Alongside Albani, two others will use this loan: one will invest in a business raising pigs; the other in a clothes-making business. All of the group's members are looking to increase their incomes in order to improve their own and the families' living conditions.

In this group: Shirley, Albani, Virginia
