Unidos Para Triunfar Group's story

At 28 years old, Fernando has the role of president of this group in the communal bank. Fernando has a small market where he sells various products. The income from his business allows him to cover his household expenses. His goal is to rent a larger space where he'll be able to sell more products. Alicia is the treasurer of the group, and like Fernando she runs a small shop. She also sells cosmetics through catalog sales. Alicia is currently pregnant and also cares for her other child, but this is no impediment to her work. Every day she gets up early to tend to her business and her family. The group's secretary is Asucena. She lives with her husband and their 4 year old son. Asucena sells food and clothing in various locations around the city. The money she earns from her business helps her cover her household costs. Asucena would like to be able to open a shop in her home and grow her business and income. The members of the group are responsible and punctual with payments, which they've demonstrated with their good credit history.

In this group: Fernando, Alicia, Maria Estela, Asucena , Marcelina, Carmen, Gladis, Maritza, Monica
