Luz Y Vida Group's story

Group called Luz y Vida started as a union of friends and neighbors. It is a new communal bank consisting of women who are heads of their families and participate in a program aimed at the elimination of poverty. All of them fight in order to overcome their situation of poverty.

One of the members is Maria. She earns a living from selling vegetables she produces. Maria says that despite her modest job she can cover her family needs and provide it with a life of dignity. Maria is a self-sacrificing person. She starts working very early every day and she is proud of what she does.

Maria is asking for a loan so that she can buy seeds, manure, fertilizers and other products in order to continue with her job as she has been doing.

Note: Even though this is a group loan the photo shows only 1 person. It was not possible to take a group photo without avoiding gathering of people in the Covid-19 pandemic situation.
