Los Amigos Victoriosos Group's story

The Los Amigos Victoriosos ["The Victorious Friends"] group is made up of five people, all residents of the Agua Fria hamlet in the Nacaome, Valle sector. The following is a description of what they do to earn their daily bread:

Young Sandra Lizeth A. sells used clothing and tortillas. Mrs. Leonarda G. sells curds, cheese and milk. She has livestock and gets her milk from these animals to make her products.

Mr. Lazaro Antonio D. and Mr. Jose David E. make bricks, producing large quantities to be sold wholesale.
Mr. Jose Santos M. sells doughnuts, quesadillas and cheese.

They are all very hard-working people. Their business are very well-known by the people in their sector and in the neighbouring areas.
They will use this loan for the purchase of bundles of used clothing, earth, sand, firewood, cheese, rennet tablets, lime, water, butter, corn and cheese.

Mr. Lazaro and Jose E. need to repair the oven where they make the bricks.

The greatest wish of each group member is for their businesses to grow more, and to be able to enter into new markets.

They need their income in order to get their families ahead.

In this group: Leonarda, Lazaro Antonio, Sandra Lizeth, Jose David , Jose Santos
