A loan of $5,350 helped a member to buy clothing to sell.


La Alegría Group's story

The committee La Alegría is from the city of San Lorenzo. Eighteen women form part of it where all of them help each other out as much as possible to be able to get ahead and in this way also give their families what they need. Virginia is president of the group and says that she always tries to help the members, motivate them, and urge them to be able to continue working and getting ahead. She sells all types of clothing- winter and also summer- and thanks to her work is getting ahead and in this way helping her family. She is requesting the loan to buy general clothing since in this way she will be able to continue working and fulfilling her customers' demands.

In this group: Virginia, Avellina, Amalia, Guillermina, Fermina, Dalida, Nadia, Antonia, Patronila, Alicia, Lucia, Yenny, Anicia, Margarita, Teresa, Blaida, Liz, Silveria
