Doris Amalia

Doris is a member of the communal bank called Senor de los Milagros. She is 21 years old and married with twin 9 month old babies. Doris finished highschool and went to work in a printing shop for a year. The job was good, but she needed to leave once she was pregnant. A friend suggested that Doris start selling shoes that she was making. And so Doris saw the opportunity she needed and now she sells shoes from her house. Since she has been working with the communal bank, she has learned to be responsible and she is timely with her payments. She sees that there is a lot of solidarity between the bank's members. Doris will use the loan to purchase shoes and sandals. Her dream is to one day have her own shoe shop set up in her house.
