El Rincon De Las Amigas Group's story

The El Rincón de las Amigas (The Girlfriends’ Nook) committee came about through the formation of the La Familia (The Family) committee in the San Salvador neighborhood which was in its second organizational meeting. The number of members surpassed the maximum allowed so two committees were formed. It currently has 15 members who are in their ninth cycle in the program.

Rossana is one of the members. She has a store in her home selling general merchandise. Much of her time is spent tending to the business but her family helps constantly with all the chores she has.

She now has the option of preparing food to sell to her customers since they come by the store at all hours and she wants to take advantage of this to increase income.

She is asking for a loan to buy the ingredients she will use in meal preparation, especially meats, oils, vegetables and others.
