Buena Vista Lll Group's story

The committee named “Buena Vista III” consists of 10 members who are all neighbors from the same community. This committee does not have much experience working as a communal group. In the short time they have worked together each week, they have been able to share and communicate with one another so that they can internalize their new responsibilities as a group and resolve their differences.

One of the members is Sra. Delia, who sells “chipa” (cheese bread). With the income she earns, she is able to help her husband with the household expenses. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy necessary ingredients that she needs to continue producing cheese bread such as starch, corn flour, milk, eggs, and other items. These ingredients will help her make a flavorful and high-quality product.

In this group: Edita, Delia, Irma, Raquel, Liz, Mirta, Liliana, Germina, Leonora, Mirna
