12 De Junio Group's story

The group "12 de Junio" (June 12th) is in its 20th cycle. All work together and help one another to get by. In doing a poverty elimination survey, they found that six women are living below the poverty line.

One of the members who is at the red level is Ms. Nancy. She states that apart from her beauty salon, she also sells jewelry. She is a person who puts forth a lot of effort to get by, and for this reason she does all kinds of work in order to increase her profits in order to help her family. Her dream is to have a bigger beauty salon, and in this way she could also give jobs to other people who need them.

Ms. Nancy would like to use this loan to buy new supplies for her beauty salon, which would help in finalizing her business plan and increase profits.

In this group: Perla, Ignacia, Delia, Isabel, Viviana, Sonia, Ramona, Nancy, Elizabeth, Dayana, Liliana, Lucia, Mirtha, Leonor, Maria, Alicia, Fulgencia, Maria, Lida, Maria, Mirian, Johana*
