Esperanza De Pasacoguin 1 Group's story

Lucia is 29 years old, married, and studied three years of her 'educación primaria' (schooling for children aged 7-14). She has two children who are not in school yet. Lucia's business is selling clothing for all ages. She started this business with a small amount of capital and she currently has 5 years' experience. She has the support of her husband who is in the same line of work.

Lucia got together a group to request a loan that she will use to buy merchandise. This will increase her sales. In the future, she would like to have more capital. The other members of this group make handicrafts, sell products and work in agriculture.

In this group: Lucia, Juliana, Felipa Rosalinda, Veronica Anastacia, Hermelinda, Santiago, Santiaga, Gladis Edina, Sara Marisol, Aurelia, Marcela, Alba
