Luz De La Esperanza Group's story

This is the communal bank "Luz De La Esperanza", formed by 7 members. They are in their sixth loan cycle and over the time they have shown responsibility and comradeship.
Olga is the treasurer of the group. She is married and has two children, one of whom she still supports. She has been selling candy as a street vendor for over 10 years. Most of her customers are people that travel to the center of the country. She is happy to have managed to help her children with their studies.
She will use her latest loan to purchase candy, confectionery goods and sodas. Her biggest wish is to buy a car to provide transportation services.
The "Luz De La Esperanza" communal bank is grateful for the loan that enables them to progress. Olga is the first woman sitting on the front row starting from the right.
