La Amistad Group's story

This committee is called "La Amistad" [Friendship]. It was formed by women who are the heads of their families and who seeks a way to be able to move their families ahead. It is for this reason that they decided to form part of the group, since they saw it as an opportunity to be able to achieve their goals. They are also in the program for the elimination of poverty.

Claudia is one of the members. She is a hard-working person who, with much effort, helps her husband with the household income. She is married and the mother of three children, who are the motivation for her daily effort and sacrifice. She is a very sacrificing person who works every day from early in the morning selling flip-flops and embroidered towels. She comments that [her business] is going very well for her, since everything she makes is very pretty and pleases her customers.

She is requesting this loan for the purchase of various products needed to do her work, such as beads and tweezers, among other products.

Note: Only one person appears in the photo, but this is a group loan. It wasn't possible to take the group photo because of the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to avoid a gathering of people.
