Independientes Group's story

The group 'Independientes' is represented by Marisol, who counts on a relationship between herself and her sister Isabel. They are sisters, but earn money totally independently of one another. The members of the community bank are dedicated to different economic activities, such as food sales, promoters of different brands of cosmetics, sale of internet and phone lines, shoe sales, stall sales of clothing, and the sale of groceries. As in all commercial areas there always exists competition for the sale and for demand, especially in the product market, but all the members are progressing forward with their small businesses, thanks to their experience and willingness to work. The requested loan is to increase product stocks for their busineses, such as buying telephone cards, better quality clothes, and consumables. The majority of the members are in their third season with the institution, in which time they have demonstrated responsibility, honesty and punctuality with their payments.

In this group: Marisol, Concepcion, Roxana, Fabiola Rossy, Isabel, Justo Guido, Elizabeth Del Carmen, Josefa, Maria Elena, Marilin, Magaly*, Teresa, Betto Orlando
