Siempre Adelante Group's story

Liz Abigail E. F. is the one sitting in the picture holding her child. She is 25 years old and lives with her partner with whom she has two small children. She is part of the group “Siempre Adelante” along with 8 other people who are all hard workers who live in the Comas district.

Mrs. Abigail sells beauty products to her family and friends for a living. She goes to their homes to make her sales and tells us that she enjoys this work a lot because she gets to meet people, see her friends and family often, and above all because it gives her time to both take care of her children and to spend time them.

Thanks to her job, she can support her husband when he’s without work since he doesn’t have stable employment. She is also able to take care of her children’s expenses like clothing, private teachers, and outings.

She would like to be able to move her eight year old to a private school (which she plans on doing next year).
With this loan, she plans to invest in the purchase of shoes that she will sell in the same way she sells beauty products.

In this group: Eladio Segundo, Silvia, Donatila Eulalia, Liz Abigail, Maria Lucero, Maria Luisa, Delia Cristina, Blanca Odilia, Ana Estela*
