A loan of $1,400 helped a member to buy charcoal for sale.

La Amistad Group's story

The "Comite Amistad" is from Chaco and they are in their first cycle of loans and want to advance themselves in this program by getting to know each other better and helping each other through everyone's hard work. They are very hardworking and enthusiastic women.

One example in this struggle is Graciela, the president of the group, who works from the very early morning selling charcoal, which is doing very well because many people use charcoal, since it's a lot cheaper than propane. She is helping her family to get ahead and she feels satisfied by what she has done, but wants to continue growing her business. She is asking for this loan to buy more charcoal and have it in stock so that she doesn't run out and fail to deliver what her customers need.

In this group: Graciela, Agustina, Maria Liz, Daniela, Lucina, Mercedes Antonia, Claudelina, Florinda, Liz Marizza, Vicenta Soledad, Francisca
