Rosas Del Pedregal Group's story

"Rosas D. Pedregal" is an entrepreneurial bank group comprised of 8 women who live in the Pedregal area in the southern part of the city. This area is still underdeveloped and does not have many basic utilities such as running water. But this does not represent difficulties for the population living in this area.

The president of the bank, Mrs. Alicia, is a seamstress and also works as a cook in a hostel in the city. She lives with her three school-aged children. Her husband works in the transportation sector. Alicia plans to use the loan to increase her working capital and buy a sewing machine. She is a very hard-working person and grateful for the support she has received.

All of the members are dependable, hard-working women who in many cases are the ones responsible for their families getting ahead. They are grateful to the institution for the support received. N.B. One of the members is accompanied by her husand in the photo.

In this group: Alicia, Elizabeth, Charo Hilda, Justina, Reina, Rosa, Meri Laura, Romelia Sandra
