A loan helped a member to buy drinks, bread, vegetables and other products.


Alegria Group's story

This committee is in its 25th cycle of the women's committee program. They are also in the poverty elimination program, where all fight for a better quality of life for their families, so that they do not have to go through any kind of need.

One of the members is Emilce, who is also the president of the group. She sells food and also has a modest sales business, a small grocery store. She is an entrepreneurial person who starts very early in the morning and says that she is doing very well because she has gathered a clientele that always buys from her. Her goal is to continue improving and to be able to offer her loved ones everything she could not have.

She requests this loan to be able to buy a variety of products to sell in her store, such as drinks, baked goods, vegetables, fruits and other products, and also to buy ingredients to make her meals.

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

In this group: Emilce, Claudia, Angela, Antonia, Dolly, Aueliana, Estela, Nilda, Florinda, Nilda, María, Pablina, Yessica
