Las Azucenas Group's story

América belongs to the Azucenas (Lilies) Community Bank. She has a station where she sells car parts, as well as oil and filters. She has had this business for 4 years and she reinvests her earnings in the business. She is married and has 4 grown children. Her husband helps with the home's expenses.

Juana has worked selling snack foods like potato chips, plantain chips, peanuts, and other products for more than 15 years. She has 10 grown children but her main worry is her partner. He suffers from diabetes. She is going to invest the loan money to sell ceviche from her home and earn more money.

Leonor sells beauty products, and this job lets her earn the money for part of the expenses of the home. She is separated and has 6 children to care for. Her goal is to have a beauty school to teach other people.

The group members will use the loan to buy products and supplies to improve sales and obtain higher earnings.
