La Paz Group's story

Sra. Mari Luz led the organization of this committee. She lives in the San Sebastian neighborhood of Presidente Franco. It's a local committee that she organized by asking her friends and neighbors to join. The group is called "La Paz" (Peace) and is now starting its seventh round of fundng with 20 members. The group is notable in the neighborhood for being united and responsible in their dealings with one another. The members share an entrepreneurial spirit and all operate small businesses.
One of the members is Sra. Elizabeth who operates a business selling herbal medicines. She has operated the business for a while now and it's profitable because she buys wholesale supplies of the herbs and sells them in smaller batches. She will use the loan to buy supplies of new herbal medicines (bags of apple blossom, boldos, etc.).

In this group: Elizabeth, Daisy, Iris, Carlina, Gabriela, Luciana, Isabel, Mirta, Nilsa, Pricila, Nidia, Sandra, Lilian, Cynthia, Zully, Norma, Gregoria, Rosa*, Carmen*, Juana*
