Amigas Group's story

The communal bank group called Amigas [Friends] is in its 7th loan cycle from the Fighting Women committee program, where all work and help each other get ahead. They are participating in the poverty elimination survey, where three members are below the poverty line, meaning, in extreme poverty, striving to get ahead.

One of the members is Liz, who works in retail. She has a small grocery store where she works every day from very early in the morning. She has made a living with this for some time and, with it, has been able to help support her home and her family.

Liz a self-sacrificing person who, despite daily difficulties, does not allow herself to be defeated and strives to be able to meet her goals and thus give the best to her people. She is requesting this loan to invest in the purchase of varied products for her store, such as canned goods, vegetables, condiments, dairy products, meat, and other products to keep with her sales as she has been doing.
