La Alegria Group's story

The committee, La Alegría, began with the joining of various neighbors from the community of Calle Naviadad-Guayaibi. This committee is in its sixth cycle with eleven members. It is a group that is known in its neighborhood for being very close, supportive, and responsible. The members possess a great entrepreneurial spirit as they dedicate every day to payments and intend to finish this stage fulfilling the institution's responsibilities. Every woman in the committee is dedicated to different economic activities in order to generate extra income for the well-being of their families. For example, the señora Prisila sells domestic, household products. She is seeking a loan for some personal costs related to her family. She would like to buy shoes for her children for school and other items that they need.
