Santa Librada Group's story

This group, called “Santa Librada,” is currently in its 3rd loan cycle with the “Comite de Mujeres” [Women's Committee] program. They are recognized in their community for the manner in which they work, always in a united fashion, with one helping the other, so that, thanks to their work, they are able to provide their families with the necessities.

A story worth relating is Rossana's; she is single, 26 years old, and has, since she was very young, been dedicated to selling things in the streets. In this way, she has been able to advance her mother. They live alone and Rossana sustains their household.

Rossana is requesting a loan to buy sheets, blankets, eiderdowns, and other products, to be able to offer a greater variety to her customers and, in this way, to produce some earnings.

In this group: Antolina, Rossana , Telida , Analia , Eleuteria , Ramona , Palmira , María , Celva , Luciana , Ma. Silvina , Cristina , Estelvina
