Luz De San Antonio Group's story

Diana is one of the 9 members of the loan group "Luz D. San Antonio." She lives with her partner and has 3 dependent children. She became a member of the group at the invitation of one of the organizing members. For 3 years, Diana has had a business selling fast food such as salchipapas (a typical dish of sausage and potatoes), chicken wings, and burgers. She works to contribute to the household income and help her partner. To date, she has bought some domestic appliances that improve her quality of life and has taken on making the monthly payments for some of their utilities. She tells us that, if she had more capital to invest she would buy children's and adult's clothing to sell and make more income. She will use the loan that she is requesting now to buy chicken, potatoes, and some school supplies that her children need. Diana and her companions in the loan group Luz D. San Antonio are responsible and punctual month after month. We can see Diana in the photo with her daughter.

In this group: Diana Eloina, Olinda Yola, Yolanda Florentina, Bertha Giovana, Llerlit, Hermenegilda Trinidad, Celina Julia, Violeta Yeny, Flor De Maria
