A loan helped a member to buy meat, eggs, bread, etc.


Los Angeles Group's story

This committee is called "Los Angeles." The women help each other and seek a way to be able to provide a better quality of life for their families. They are also in the elimination of poverty program, where everyone is fighting to improve.

One of them is Liliana, who makes a living making and selling hamburgers. She says that her work is modest, but through it she has been able to help her family get ahead. She defines herself as a person who seeks to offer her loved ones everything that she herself was never able to have, and who wants a better quality of life.

She is requesting this loan in order to buy products to make her hamburgers, like meat, eggs, bread, etc. She is grateful for the opportunity she has received to be able to improve her quality of life and that of her loved ones.

Note: In the photo there is only one person, but this is a group loan. It was not possible to have a group photo because of the need to avoid gathering people together in the Covid-19 pandemic.

In this group: Apolonia, Lisandra, Norma, Liliana, Rocio, Florentina, Carmen, Evelyn, Damiana, Lidia, Ada, Maria, Daisy, Nicasia, Maria, Yohana, Francisca
