A loan helped a member to buy 3 containers of gas in order to have enough fuel to bake every day.


Naranjillo Group's story

Martha continues with her bakery business. She invested the previous loan in the purchase of different types of flour, such as rice, corn, wheat, etc. Her loan payments were punctual because her business did not have any problems.

Martha is seated first from the left, wearing a white sweater and black pants. This communal bank took the opportunity to meet, with the goal of continuing to improve their businesses. The members' businesses are natural medicine sales, leather craftwork, secondhand clothing sales, making straw hats, a neighborhood store, a meat pie store, cooking pot sales, and a hardware store.

Martha's business is a traditional bakery, which she operates from her house every day of the week, in a room made into a kitchen. "We are continuing to work in the bakery, we are improving the business, and now we want to increase the quantity," she comments.

Her business's advantage is that it sells product every day. The disadvantage is the lack of capital to buy containers of gas and have constant fuel to bake. Her dream is to continue improving her bakery until it becomes well-established.

She wants to purchase 3 containers of gas in order to have sufficient fuel to bake every day. This is her 2nd loan cycle with the institution in the 4 years that she has been running her business independently.

For these reasons, Martha is requesting a loan to purchase 3 containers of gas in order to have sufficient fuel to bake every day.
