Santa Librada Group's story

The group Santa Librada is on its eighth loan cycle of the Committee of Women Program, in which they all work and help each other get ahead.

They are doing a survey about eliminating poverty, according to which the 18 group members were able to overcome the poverty line. Through effort, continuous work, and the application of the vital behavior of successful women, they find themselves improving their poverty-stricken situations, but they are equally conscious that this work and the effort that they are making has to be continuous and permanent to achieve total success.

Andresa sells newspapers, cardboard bingo boards, keychains, numbers games, as well as products corresponding to the dates in celebration, such as St. Valentine's Day, during which she sells gift items.

Andresa is requesting this loan to purchase various products to sell, such as stuffed animals, decorated boxes, flowers, keychains, handkerchiefs, chocolates, etc. which will help her to realize her business plan.

In this group: Ramona, Gladys, Cristina, Francisca, Carmen, Ana, Lucia, Reinelda, Andresa, Ilda, Justina, Gloria, Sebastiana, Mirian, Nimia, Elsa*, Jorgelina*, Calixta*
