Fortaleza Group's story

Anastacia Lidia is 37 years old, single, and has a small daughter who is the reason for all of her efforts and sacrifice. She is part of the group "Fortaleza," along with 9 other people who live in the Carabayllo district. They chose her to be the president of the board of directors of the group.

Anastacia Lidia has sold groceries from her home for 6 years. She had to devise a job for herself that she could perform in her home, so that she could stay close to her daughter to care for her. With her work and effort, she has been able to support her small daughter and assume the household expenses and buy the appliances needed for the home.

Her next goal would be to establish a mini-market. With the loan requested she will pay off some debts, and she will invest the rest.

In this group: Anastacia Lidia, Higinio, Maria Elena*, Isabel, Yulisa Mavila, Silvia Carmen, Carlos Enrique*, Gladys , Diana Isabel, Marlene Aurora
