Villa Universitaria Group's story

The Villa Universitaria (University Villa) committee of enterprising women was formed with much effort and dedication in a unified and mutually supportive manner within the program. One of the members is Ana who has a grocery store stocked with all kinds of first need articles. She comments that the business helps her feed her family and she is satisfied with what she earns since this is what is most important for her. She wants to buy a good amount of merchandise and this is what she needs the loan for: to buy meat, vegetables, fruit, dairy products and others. She is grateful for being part of the group. Besides the independent work of each one of them, they also undertake group activities to raise funds in order to have group capital. They also help one another reach their goal which, in particular, is to help their families economically.

In this group: Ana, Gerarda, Juliana, Celsa, Casilda, Otilia, Florencia, Petrona, Carolina, Maria, Estela, Agustina, Maria, Alba, Zunilda
