Fuerza Y Union Hacia El Futuro Group's story

Lizet is a 22 year old young woman. She has a small daughter who is one year and nine months old. Her daughter is the reason for all of the efforts and sacrifices in her life.

Three years ago she joined the Fuerza y Union Hacia el Futuro group. She joined ten other people, and they elected her as president of the group. They resiD. in the Parral area in the Comas district. She tells us that when she started in the group she sold food to her neighbors. With the loans that she got she expanded her business and started to offer fixed menu meals. She later married her husband, and he helped her set up a space in her house. Now she sells only at night. She sells kebobs, hot dogs, and grilled chicken, etc.

With her work she has been able to furnish her house. She bought some household items, and she maD. her business grow. Above all, she was able to support her husband when he was left without work.

Her next goal is to get together enough to buy a larger grill, arrange everything in her workspace, and put down the floor.

The loan she is requesting is to buy supplies for making her sandwiches to take advantage of the school sales for the start of classes.

In this group: Lizet, Soledad Paulina, Rosa Luz, Delia Celinda, Elia Elvira, Matilde Monica, Angelica, Eliot, Maria Soledad, Maria Rosario, Virginia Pilar
