8 De Diciembre Group's story

This group was formed thanks to Perla Maria Riquelme but because of some small problems, they changed the president and now it's Patricia Bernarda G., and the group is doing very well and continues working. All of the members are from the San Miguel neighborhood in the city of Villa Elisa.

Patricia sells lottery tickets, and in this way is able to bring in income for her family and cover her expenses. She is seeking this loan in order to pay for the refurbishment of her home as she wants a few improvements made to it, and she thanks her friends for the trust they've placed in her in having her be the leader of the group.

All of the women are very hard working and responsible when it comes to making their repayments. They have their meetings in Claudia C.'s home, who is the treasurer of the group. She is a very happy woman, hardworking, honest. All of the group members who are all women who advance with their entrepreneurship with much effort and dedication are very grateful for the foundation that has let them have this unique opportunity and for making it possible for them to support their respective families.

In this group: Patricia, Claudia, Angela, Cirilo, Gabriela, Celia, Marta, Marta, Elida, Eustaquia, Perdida, Dolly, Alba*, Rossana, Julia, Lourdes, Maria, Aurora*, Ramona*
