La Buena Amistad Group's story

Italo is one of the members of the group, La Buena Amistad Italo is single and is 45 years old. Nowadays, he is the president of the group and the only male. They have participated together many years. Italo sells bread, a trade which he carries out every day in the mornings, distributing homemade bread to different areas of the city. With his savings, he has managed to open another business selling butane for household use. For this reason, he bought a stand in the market in his area from which he makes his sales and distribution of the butane.. His customers are the same market traders, housekeepers, and local restaurants. Italo feels happy because thanks to the loans, he has managed to increase his working capital that allows him to prosper. With the money from his current loan, he will purchase more butane tanks for his business. His greatest dream in life is to buy himself his own house and to turn into a successful trader. Italo is grateful to all the investors who support he and his communal group so much. The lady who is seen in the purple polo shirt appears as a guest.
