Independencia V Group's story

Josefa is the group leader; she is in a green shirt in the photo. She sells bedding, table, and bathroom items door to door, and to supplement her income, she also works as a day laborer. With the loan she is going to travel to buy towels and linens, already thinking of increasing her sales at the end of the year. Her dream is to have a stall in which to open her little store. The group has four members, and they are all very grateful to the investors.
