La Amistad Group's story

"La Amistad" ("Friendship") is made up of 13 friends and neighbors in the city of Mariano Roque Alonso; this is exactly why they gave their group this name. All these women are anxious to make progress and get ahead, since they are very enterprising, self-sacrificing heads of household.

One of these hardworking women is Gloria, who recycles products like bottles, cardboard and other types of recyclable materials. She defines herself as a very self-sacrificing woman because she tries very hard to help her family through her work. Gloria works everyday collecting the materials that she sells.

She is asking for the loan to buy recyclable materials that she will later resell to gain more benefits.

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