A loan of $1,925 helped a member to purchase hamburgers and buns.

Amistad Group's story

This committee was formed thanks to Señora Petrona P.. They were part of another group that she put together, but the group was very large and they had differences, so they decided to divide the group. She is currently the president.

Señora Petrona is a very hard-working woman, who, despite suffering a heart attack, continues to be active in improving the group. She makes and sells hamburgers for a living from a stand at her house. Starting early in the evening, she cooks for all her customers that come to her stand. She likes this work because it doesn't require long hours and she still has time for her family. She is requesting a loan to buy buns, hamburgers and soft drinks.

Her fellow group members have their own ongoing small businesses and even though they were a bit late with the payments on their first loan, they made the payments for their last loan on time and they are committed to doing the same with the present loan. They are very grateful to the Fundación for the opportunity they are offering them and hope to remain in good standing to increase their line of credit and, in turn, increase their earnings and savings.

In this group: Petrona, Sira, Yessica, Victoriana, Liz, Clara, Elida, Bernarda, Viviana, Mariana, Natalia, Blanca, Maria, Arminda, Virginia*, Oracia*, Francisca*
