Union Progreso Group's story

Cordial greetings! The group "Unión Progreso" (Progress Union) consists of 12 enthusiastic members who are in their 8th loan cycle. In the course of time, this group has demonstrated responsibility. This is the case with Maria Felicita, one of the members. She is married and has 5 children, of whom she continues to support one. Maria Felicita sells school supplies, since she has a bookstore in her home. This business is the result of her effort, and, with much work, it has been improving more every day. She used her last loan to buy school supplies such as notebooks, pencils, folders, and markers. To continue setting up her business is her greatest desire. Maria Felicita is the third from the left side. She is wearing a black jacket and blue pants. The group Unión Progreso appreciates the loan offered, since it makes their progress possible.

In this group: Maria Lourdes, Myrian Nidia, Maria Felicita, Editha Mery*, Mariela Soledad, Cecilia, Lucy Rosmery, Carmen Rosa, Maria Cecilia, Carole Maribel, Eyda Constantina, Dorixa Grizzely
