La Amistad Group's story

The La Amistad communal bank is made up of independent women, a majority of whom are street vendors selling products such as books, underwear, hair care products, cosmetics, and even food. Each and every one of them tries hard to progress, and to succeed in the work they do.

One member, Vidalina, has been a hairdresser for several years, and already has her own clientele. She seeks to satisfy the needs of her clientele, so that she can also meet her basic needs with the money that this work generates.

She needs the loan to be able to buy products for her salon, such as hair creams, combs, brushes, hair dyes, nail polishes, etc. These are what she needs to meet the demands of her customers, who are fussy.

In this group: Lilian, Lidia, Vidalina, Olga, Myrian, Mirian, Nancy, Francisca, Miguela, Elida, Sofia, Norma, Julia, Silvia, Margarita, Noelia, Miryan, Teodolina
