Primicia Group's story

The members formed the Primicia committee with the intention of progressing and improving. The majority of them are involved in activities that are productive, and their average loan is $99. The loan is to increase and diversify their current activities. For example, to make meals they will buy milk, sugar, herbs, flour, salt, bread, and vegetables. They will also buy drinks such as soft drinks, beer, wine, etc. to sell.

All of the members hope that their children do not experience the same lack of education and jobs that they have experienced. This is why they work twice as hard to achieve their objectives.
