A loan helped a member to buy athletic footwear.

Los Primos Group's story

Rosalía works selling athletic footwear.

The loan she acquired will be used to buy her merchandise.

She has two children whom she motivates to become professionals by helping each other with the earnings from her sales. She also supports her family because she's a single mother and wants to buy herself her own little house.

She has been in this line of work for 23 years. She started by selling door-to-door, offering her merchandise throughout the different regions in the department. With her sacrifice she managed to increase and improve her merchandise, ultimately diversifying the products she sells.

There are only three people in the photograph because of biosafety measures during the ongoing worldwide pandemic. Rosalía, in a gray sweater with a brown purse and black face mask, is the recording secretary. María Eugenia, in a white sweater, glasses, and black cap, is the treasurer. Delia, in a mustard sweater, black purse, and white face mask, is the president.

In this group: Ana Maria, Delia, Sergio Alid , Eliseo, Carmen Rosa, Juan Carlos, Maria Eugenia, Rosalia
