El Lirio Group's story

The group "El Lirio" is made up of 10 people who each work in different businesses. This group is located in a sugar cane region, and the neighborhood where they live is surrounded by sugar cane crops.

Hugo is one of the members of this group. He is 25 years old, and completed the third year of high school. He is married to Damaris, and they do not yet have children. Hugo is a hardworking youth, who says that a year ago he decided to rent a shop where he could sell clothing for women and men to support himself. Thanks to God his business has been successful and sales have been good. He has been using his profits to gradually stock up his business. He and his wife personally attend to the business and they give their customers good service so that they will be happy to buy from them again.

He is requesting this loan because he wants to stock up on more shirts, blouses, T-shirts, pants, shorts, underwear and also some cold weather clothing, since the cold season has begun and his customers are asking him for this.

He hopes that with this investment his business will grow and he will attract more customers. He wants to save money so that when he decides to become a father he will be able to have a house for his children, and provide them with a good quality of life.
