Las Flores De Buenos Aires Group's story

The “Las Flores de Buenos Aires” communal bank is a new group. It’s composed of 11 enthusiastic members ready to start working with Programa-Prosperidad.

Paula is 64 years old, widowed and has 8 independent children. She is a vegetable and tuber street vendor; she’s had the business for more than 20 years. Paula is a very hardworking woman and she’s proud of that because she’s been able to provide education for her children through her efforts. Her greatest wish is to have a locale of her own where she can sell her products.

Aiming at continuing improving her business, she asked for the loan to buy potatoes, onions, tomatoes and vegetables in order to have something to offer her customers.

The new “Las Flores de Buenos Aires” communal bank are grateful for the loan granted.

In this group: Celina, Paula Saturnina, Victoria, Victoria Rosario, Ricardina Rosario, Grover Alberto, Gladys, Luzmila, Margarita Ysabel, Raul Humberto, Maritza
