Las Divinas Group's story

The Las Divinas Loan Group is represented by Señor Carlos and consists of twelve people, among whom there exists a family relationship between Señoras Lizeth and Liliana who are sisters but whose finances are separate.They come from large families, as the the photograph shows, since some of the members may be seen with their spouse and small children. Among the activities these members are engaged in for their daily income are: selling juices, cosmetics catalog sales, selling clothing, or prepared food, or selling groceries in neighborhood stores. Within the competitive framework, the members have a large market and so competition does not worry them. The objective of the loan is to buy items of consumption and tools that would help them to increase their incomes in order to be able to proviD. their families with a better quality of life. In spite of being a relatively new group, many members of this group have experience in solidarity group lending through other institutions that are similar to AgroCapital. Their solidarity group experience has helped to give them confidence and also economic help to improve their earnings and in turn the quality of their lives and homes.

In this group: Carlos, Gladys, Cledy, Genny, Martha, Sara, Lizeth, Ruth Sonia, Liliana, Maria Lourdes, Carolina Marleny, Patricia
