La Amistad 2 Group's story

Eighteen women from the city of Mariano Roque Alonso have joined together to work and jointly get ahead to help their families.

This is where the group name La Amistad 2 [The Friendship 2] comes from.

They are doing the poverty elimination survey and two of them are under the poverty line.
