Dios Nos Ama Group's story

Good business ideas and dedication are what characterize this community group called 'Dios nos Ama' [God Loves Us]. It is made up of 7 hard-working people who want to get ahead. The group was formed 2 years ago, when the members demonstrated that they had the desire to work together.

Leandra, one of the group members, is 40 years old and is married with two children, who are her reason to live. In the mornings she tends to the household chores and also watches over her small store. She has had the store for a year and a half; it is a source of income which allows her to contribute to her family's expenses. With the joint effort of her and her husband, they have been able to move forward and provide an education to their children who are currently both studying. They were also able to buy land in which they hope to build a house on in the future. With this loan she plans to invest in improvements to the property where her store is located. Like Leandra, each member of the group has their own unique story, but one thing they all have in common is their enthusiasm and desire to get ahead for the good of one another and for their families.

In this group: Leandra, Bertha Jessica, Maria Francisca, Faraun*, Julio Cesar, Aquino, Marleni
