Vecinas Unidas Group's story

The "Vecinas Unidas" group was formed with the union of friends and neighbours of the city of Villarrica. It is a relatively new committee where all the members fight for a better quality of life for their loved ones.

One of the members is Lidia, who makes a living selling fresh fruit and vegetables. She mentions that she has a modest hawker business and that through this she has been able to help support her loved ones. She says that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, her work has been affected and also her income, which affected her ability to fulfil all her obligations.

She is asking for this loan so that she can invest it in the purchase of fresh fruit and vegetables in order to continue with her sales as she has been doing so far, and in addition to improve her business and giving it a boost.

Note: Only one person appears in the photo, but this loan is group, it was not possible to take a group photo to avoid the crowding of people due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
