La Victoria Group's story

The group called La Victoria is in their 8th loan cycle with the Women's Committee program where they all work and help each other to get ahead. They are participating in the Poverty Elimination survey where they all strive to provide their loved ones a better quality of living.

Maria is one member. She earns her living selling. She is a person who through sacrifice, strives each day to get ahead. She comments that she sells clothing to generate the income her family needs. She is a hard-working person who does her work with much enthusiasm as by doing it she helps support her family.
