Siempre Amigas Group's story

The "friends forever" association belongs to the Pan-American center. With the help of it's loan officer, the group is very responsible in all of its activities.

Nearly all of the group members are married, and many have families. Most of the daily costs of running a home exceed the income earned from their businesses, as the group members have many children with growing needs.

Most group members sell various products from their stores and also on the street. For example, some sell groceries, cheese, vegetables, and cleaning products. They also weave blankets. The members would like to improve their sales and therefore need capital to buy supplies wholesale. In this way they'll improve their income and the economic stability of their homes.

In this group: Natividad, Tereza, Martha, Fransisca*, Irene, Irene, Isabel, Esperanza, Betty, Celestina, Carla, Sonia
