Alondra Group's story

Alondra is a group made up of seven hardworking and kind people. This group is located in a community whose only source of employment is collecting resin from rubber trees and cultivating and planting sugarcane.

Ausencia has had a small grocery shop in her home for over four years. She decided to set up her own business in order to contribute to household expenses.

Ausencia is 31 years old, was educated only to primary school level, is married to Jose and has three children.

Her favorite thing about her business is that she not only earns her own money but that she is teaching her children that in life you succeed by working, because they sometimes help her to sell.

She will invest this loan in buying a variety of canned products, oil, juices, beans, salt, rice, soup, sugar, flour, sweets, soft drinks, chillies, tomatoes and onions to restock her business.

She hopes that in the future her business continues to grow, and that she can stock it with more products to give her family a better life.

This group is grateful to Vision Fund for the support it gives them through these loans.

The other members of the group are: Alberta, who sells chicken; Maria Elizabeth, who sells soft drinks and sweets; Maricela, who sells Mole paste; Piedad, who sells underwear; Adan, who sells bread, and Alberta, who sells sweets

In this group: Alberta , Ausencia , Maria Elizabeth, Maricela , Piedad , Adan , Alberta
