Damas Del Bicentenario Group's story

The committee Damas del Bicentenario (Ladies of the Bicentennial) can be found working in the city of San Lorenzo. Their committee was formed about two years ago. They have learned to know each other and to organize themselves, paying attention to the reality of their situations. Every week they pay a little fee into their petty cash, and they are an excellent committee. They have helped with the formation of other committees in the zone where they live, also helping those people who can use their help.

Senora Alba has a little store, and she wants, through the loan, to be able to stock her little establishment with more products so that she can offer her customers more variety than she has now, and in addition to be able to assure her sustenance and that of her family.
