Luchando Por Un Sueño Group's story

Valeria is 55 years old. She lives with her partner and two dependent children. With a lot of effort, Valeria has managed to reach some of her goals, such as improving her home and supporting her childrens' education. She started selling candies from a cart, but from her hard work and the good use of her income she was able to open a kiosk where she can offer the confections.

As a secondary activity, she makes a living weaving textiles, which she does based on orders from her customers. Her biggest desire is to open her own fabric workshop, as she is very good at this.

With the loan she has requested, she will buy cookies, chocolates, candies, etc. to stock her business. Valeria is a member of the communal bank “Luchando Por Un Sueño”, which is made up of seven members who are hard-working and responsible.

They appreciate the loans offered.

In this group: Valeria, Sandra, Esthefani Yesari, Gerlyn Geraldine, Angelica, Jefferson Harold, Raida
