Luchando Por Un Sueño Group's story

Angélica is a member of the communal bank "Luchando por un Sueño" which is comprised of seven members who work responsibly.

Angélica, 60, is married and has six children who are all adults. She has her own shoe repair business in the market close to her community. Her husband works in a shoe factory and it was his expertise that helped Angélica set up her own business allowing her to help cover household expenses. Angélica's goal is to set up a grocery shop in her house so she can sell basic needs products. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy shoe soles, tacks, heels, dyes and leather for her repair shop. Angélica and her communal bank are happy and committed to the Prosperity Program.
