Los Angeles De Ventura Group's story

Teodora, 60, is a widow and has six children. She sells sheets, towels, blankets and other items for the home.

She’s been in business four years which she started selling plastic cups and plates with the idea of earning higher income to cover food and utility costs. She used to work in various houses doing domestic labor.

With her effort and work she’s managed to build her house and raise her children. She currently earmarks her earnings to cover food costs and to buy merchandise for her business. Her plan for the future is to open her own locale to sell her wares. She will use the loan to buy merchandise.

Teodora belongs to the Los Ángeles de Ventura” communal bank which has six members who named it that because one of the members of the group built a school in the area with the same name.
