Santa Rosa Buena Vista Group's story

The Santa Rosa Buena Vista group has Ofelia López A. as a representative. She is 49 and lives in a common law marriage with Mr. Enrique O. Soriano. She has 3 children, who are all married. Ofelia asked for the loan to buy more products for her store. She wants the loan to grow her business and make a little more income in order to have a better quality of life and have food to eat every day. Laura Rosario López Román is 27 years old. She is in a common law marriage with Mr.Panfilo Mozo Gutiérrez, who works in the field. She has 3 children, whose ages are 8, 5 and 2 years old. One of them is in second grade. Laura sells perfume and clothing. She makes her sales from house to house with her relatives, neighbors and friends. She has been doing this economic activity for 2 years out of need, since her daughter will start primary school and she will need more money, and what her husband makes is not enough. That is why she decided to sell these products. With the loan that she obtained, she bought more merchandise, such as: blouses, skirts and pants, as well as some bottles of perfume, in order to have more income and help with the family expenses. Laura's goal is for her children to study and have a profession so that they will have better opportunities tomorrow and not undergo the need that they are living through now.
