Alianza Y Progreso Group's story

This is the “Alianza y Progreso” group. The members’ goal is to be able to grow, not just financially but as people too. The members are also looking to improve their quality of life and so are part of the poverty elimination programme.

One group member is Norma who, through hard and continuous effort, works as a hairdresser and selling cosmetics. She has her own premises in her home. She has a number of local customers, and has been doing this work for some time. Norma joined the loan group in order to grow and improve, and continue helping her family through her work. She is content with this loan, which will be of great help to her.

Norma is applying for this loan in order to buy shampoo, dyes, creams, rinser, hairspray and other products to continue with her work.

In this group: Graciela, Elva, Estela, María, Gabriela, Gilda, Catalina, Norma, Agueda, Mariana, Hilda, Elva, Saida, Elsa, Julia, Maria, Lucia, Carmen
