La Amistad Group's story

The "La Amistad" (friendship) group was formed by several neighbors in the city of Mariano Roque Alonso. The members formed a very united group which is able to work together on activities that strengthen their comradeship. They are very well-known in the neighborhood for their teamwork and the solidarity they all show one another.

Gregoria is one of the group members. She sells sweets on the street and on the buses. She is a very hardworking lady who is very motivated to move ahead. She has 12 children and her husband, who also works as a traveling salesman. She is very satisfied with her work and with the training that the group receives.

Gregoria is asking for the loan to buy a greater variety of sweets, and also to hire one of her children to work with her.

In this group: Gregoria, Perceveranda, Blanca, Victorina, Gloria, Alba, Cecilia, Eusebia, Bernardina, Damiana, Delia, Rosa*, Marly*
