Maria Auxiliadora Group's story

This group is from Capiata and has been around for two years. With intense work, it has grown socially as well as economically. They are recognized in the area as hard-working women. They have been through difficult trials since many of the members, on occasion, do not meet their responsibilities. One of the members is Maria, who buys and sells drinks in a bar that she has in her home. With this activity, she obtains good income and is thinking of preparing and restocking a large quantity of varied merchandise for the end of the year. So, she is seeking the loan through the group made up of her and her friends. She comments that she feels very proud to be part of the group since, beyond the loan, they encourage unity, help and solidarity among each other, and help each other in personal issues as well.

In this group: Maria, Celestina, Maria, Monica, Monica, Juana, Josefina, Gloria, Lucila, Gloria, Elisa, Elisa, Petrona, Maria, Eusebia*, Liza*, Apolonia*
