La Amistad Group's story

This group is called La Amistad [Friendship]. The members are female heads of household who have joined together to be able to improve their living conditions and those of their families.

Erodita is a very hard-working person who begins her work very early every day. She has a modest store at her house, and she provides for her family through this business. In spite of her vision problem, she never let herself be defeated. She is seeking a way to better herself and to give her family everything she was not able to have and prevent them from experiencing unmet needs.

She is requesting this loan to purchase an assortment of products for her store, such as vegetables, fruits, meat, bread, and others. She is grateful for the loan she is receiving to be able to continue with her sales as she has been doing.
