Unidas De Santa Clara Group's story

This group is on their 4th loan cycle. The members are a united group and they make their payments responsibly. They are very eager to remain in the group and they consider themselves to be very good friends. During their meetings they plan the monthly activities for the group. Mirta Marlene has a confectionary. She makes the sweet and salty snacks herself, for which she takes orders. She also goes out to sell sandwiches, stuffed pastries, and tapioca cheese breads in the region with her 12-year old daughter’s help. She is the mother of three girls and they are in school. It is for their sake that she struggles each day to move forward. She wants to progress further and for this she requests a loan. She will purchase sugar, flour, sweet creams, milk, etc.

In this group: Mirta Marlene, Gilda, Eulogia, Francisca, Irma , Lidia, Aurelia, María Auxiliadora, Angela, Rosalia, Julia
