Dios Es Amor Group's story

Lucia is a member of the communal bank "God is Love" group that is made up of 7 responsible people who do different commercial activities for a living. Lucia is 54 years old and is separated with 9 children, 2 of which are still dependents. It was more than 20 years ago that Lucia began the ambulatory selling of fruit, candy and beverages, the majority of her clients being people that travel to the center of the country. She is proud of her strength to be able to progress her children alone, as she is a single mother. The money that she receives is of much help for her since it allows her to continue supporting her children. Lucia has a goal to install a grocery store since this assures her that she will have greater income. In this opportunity, she is requesting the loan to purchase soda, mineral water, and fruit to offer to her clients. The communal bank "God is Love" is grateful for the loan since it makes their progress possible. Lucia is the one that you see in the black sweater and green vest.
