A loan of $1,250 helped a member to buy clothing.


La Roca Group's story

The group "Roca" consists of four hardworking and enterprising women. One of them is Elba, who is 25 years old and has been selling clothing for five years. She started out selling a few garments and her business has grown slowly. Elba is married and has a 12-year-old son. She is expecting another child who will be born soon. The other members are Gloria who has been selling tortillas for four years; Veronica who sells corn on the cob, "atol" and "pinolillo" (beverages made from corn), and other products; and Luisa who has managed a grocery store for two years. A separate photo of the group coordinator (Elba) is shown since she is pregnant and about to give birth in a few weeks. It is not convenient for her to move around.

In this group: Elba, Gloria, Rosa, Veronica Del Socorro
