Vista Alegre Group's story

The Vista Alegre [Happy View] committee is a group that is in its third loan cycle. It has 23 members, all of whom are entrepreneurs with set goals, characterized by the way they join together and their cooperative spirit.

One of these women, Basilia, is worthy of mention. She works selling furniture. Although this is a modest job, it has helped her be able to help her family. She is a self-sacrificing person who is looking for a way to be able to better herself and keep helping her family so that they have everything they need. She mentions that her business has been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic which has kept her from working normally and prevented her from generating the necessary means to be able to cover her family's needs. Despite this, she has not given up, and she is looking for a way to start her business back up again.

She is requesting this loan to be able to buy more furniture and in this way, be able to keep working and meet the demands of her customers.

Note: Only one person appears in this photo but this is a group loan. A group photo was not possible because of trying to avoid a gathering of people due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
