A loan of $3,075 helped a member operating capital.

Las Solidarias Group's story

Leona represents the Las Solidarias group. It is comprised of 13 hard-working members. They are in their third cycle, and their expectation is to keep growing. The women have been friends for a long time. They work in different types of commercial activities like selling underwear, cosmetics by catalog, food, empanadas, and toys. The men work in public transportation of passengers. As far as competition goes, it does exist in the neighborhood. The members always know how to get ahead with more effort and dedication to their work.

The loan is to get more merchandise and supplies for their different activities. It is also to repair their vehicles by recovering the seats, buying replacement parts, and auto body repair. This will help generate more income to improve the quality of life for their children and spouses.

In this group: Leona, Jose Luis, Felicita, Marlene, Raquel, Marioly, Pabla, Casimira, Yaneth, Lizeth, Sonia, Janaina, Martha Maritza
