Siempre Alegres Group's story

The cooperative association “Always Happy” belongs to the town center of Los Andes. They joined together recently due to the need to access credit that would permit them to improve their businesses. The members have different businesses such as the sale of t-shirts, elastic bands, buttons, detergent, and others dedicate themselves to knitting sweaters and purses. They all need a loan to increase their merchandise, or to buy raw materials such as yarn and rattail cord (thick string). The ladies in this group are characterized by being kind, friendly and happy.

In this group: Viviana, Angelica Victoria, Julio, Catalina, Francisca, Francisca Jaqueline, Linaria, Monica Virginia, Natividad, Judith Monica
