Santa Librada Group's story

The communal bank named "Santa Librada" is in its third loan cycle with 19 members. This is a group that stands out in the neighborhood by being very united, supportive, and responsible. They have different businesses, but they also work together and they are completing the loan cycles without problems.

Lucia, one of the members, says that she sells foods of all types and that she is doing well. She was always skilled in the kitchen and now that helps her to move forward. Her goal is to have a big restaurant and work that way.

She is asking for help to buy condiments, meats, seasoning, and the like in order to continue making the foods that she always makes.

In this group: Delia, Guillermina, Alba, Aida, Silvia, Lidia, Sady, Patrosinia, Reinalda, Antonia, Celina, Wilma, Mercedes, Aline, Benigna, Lucia, Celia*, Esmelda*, Maria*
