Armonia Group's story

This committee is composed of 15 women, all fighters and hard workers. The name of their group is Armonia, or “Harmony.” They are all friends and neighbors in the same neighborhood. They have regular meetings so that through working together, they can help one another. Their dream is to see their businesses continue to grow. They work arduously to achieve that goal.

One of the members is Ms. Blanca who, thanks to selling charcoal, can help her family with the household expenses. This has been her means of subsistence and of helping out her family. She says that she has good sales since lately charcoal has been the most common way to cook food.

She is requesting for the loan to purchase more charcoal so she can be well stocked and have more charcoal to provide to her clients.

In this group: Karina Raquel, Blanca, Gladys, Ramona, Saturnina, Lorenza, Gladys, Gladys, Adelina, Myrian, Yohana, María, Silvia, Blanca, Victoria*
