La Alegria Group's story

The committee named La Alegría is a historic group and very united. They have 29 members who are in their twelfth cycle. They have used the loans they’ve had as a fundamental tool for growing their businesses.

One of the members of this committee is Librado who has a shop in her own home. She is a hard worker. She notes that her sales were affected by the global crisis due to the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. She is seeking a way to overcome and to improve so she can once again raise up her business and to help her family in this way as she has been doing.

She requests this loan in order to inject more capital into her business and to be able to offer more products at her business. She wants to buy drinks, baked goods, canned goods, meat, condiments, vegetables, fruit and additional products.
She is thankful for the opportunity she is receiving to be able to join this committee which will help her a lot with moving forward.

Only one person appears in this photo but it is a group loan. A group photo was not possible so as to avoid groups of people due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
