Arbol De Vida Group's story

Felipe began working as an assistant in a glazing shop a few years ago. As he is quite skillful he learnt quickly and decided to open his own business. He is happy with his achievement since it allows him to contribute to the bills at home and as he will soon welcome his first child, there will be more costs to cover in the future.

Maria has been selling sweets as a street vendor for some years. She would like to find a place where she can sell her products, even though there is a lot of competition now. She has three children who support her and she is thankful for the working capital they offer her.

All the members work in different areas which help them to support their families. They are grateful for their loans and hope to obtain new loans for their working capital.
