Barrio Alegre Group's story

The group called “Barrio Alegre” (Cheerful Neighbourhood) is in its 5th cycle of the women’s committee programme. All its members work and help each other to get ahead. They are participating in the poverty elimination survey and now 9 members have exceeded the level three indicator thanks to the support and constant advice they have received.

One of the members involved is Andresa. In her last survey she had a level of poverty in the level one indicator. She works selling Avon beauty products. She started this business recently and it is starting to grow and improve. Her dream is to continue growing and expanding her business. For this reason she is requesting this loan in order to buy silver jewellery to sell, which will complement her sales of Avon products. This will help her to achieve her business plan which in turn will help improve her income.

In this group: Dora, Estela, María, Lorenza, Wilma, Andresa, Noelia, Felicia, Ramona, Teresa
