Happiness Group's story

The group named Alegre, meaning Happiness, was started in the month of March in 2010 through the guidance and support of another group in the same locale.

This group is from San Lorenzo and lately they have working intensively and as a result their group has grown socially and financially. They are known in their community for being very hard working women. They went through a very difficult challenge in the past loan cycle after many members failed to meet the weekly commitments. But they managed to pay off the loan and they decided to restart their group anew.

In this group: Agripina, Natalia, María, Victoria, Adela, Leopoldina, Silvia, Nilsa, Débora, María, Lorena, Andrea, Gilda, Margarita, Wilma*
