Las Sabrositas Group's story

The “Las Sabrositas” group is represented by Verónica Beatriz and maD. up of 10 members who can be described as very hardworking, tight-knit and close; they all know one another since they live in the same area and have complete trust in each other. Verónica Beatriz sells sweets and fast food in the snack bar of the 6 D. Junio school. She also works as a schoolkeeper and uses it as an opportunity to sell her products. She lives at the school and wants to expand her small business with the purchase of chairs and tables for her snack bar. This is why she would like the loan. Her greatest wish is to be able to give her children a house of their own in order to grow and live better. The rest of the group works at selling fruit, soft drinks, flowers, drinks and providing public transportation of passengers as an owner of one's own vehicles or as chauffeurs and another of the members works at renting table football tables. All the group members have a lot of experience in their work so competence is not a factor that prevents them from generating income. The loan will be put toward the purchase of merchandise, vehicle repair, payment of debts and for the purchase and refurbishment of table football tables. The group is in their first cycle but already has experience with solidarity groups, which is why they know how to administer their funds and be a responsible group with their commitments.

In this group: Veronica Beatriz, Javier, Alberto, Susana, Veronica Lucia*, Leonarda, Hugo, Monica Heidi, Natividad Eugenia, Omar*
