Barrio Alegre Group's story

The “Barrio Alegre” (Cheerful Neighborhood) committee has 11 members, all women, who are neighbors in the same community. Most of them are housewives who sell various basic staples at retail. The committee is noted for being united and they complement each other’s’ activities.

One of the members is Liz who sells basic staples like vegetables; she sells lettuce, tomatoes, manioc, squash and dairy products like cheese. She’s able to provide her family with their basic needs this way.

The requested loan will be used to invest in her micro business and to buy a larger amount of merchandise to sell.
