Unidos En Victoria Group's story

Don José, who is 57 years old and the father of 3 children, works in business. His main task is the sale of general goods and he has more than 5 years of experience. His business operates in his home. José is requesting this loan as a part of a group since he can't present a fiduciary (or individual) guarantee and also because he knows the other group members well and they are very responsible people. He is part of the group along with María Esperanza, who is 48 years old and the mother of one child and Sofía Emérita, who is 30 years old. Both are business women. José and these two women are requesting the loan in order to invest in their businesses and thus, fulfill the demand of their customers, improving their sales and their quality of life. This is their first loan with the organization.

In this group: Jose Gumercindo, Sofia Emerita, Maria Esperanza
