A loan of $1,425 helped a member to buy clothing for sale and cosmetics.

Victoria Group's story

The group names Victory (Victoria) is in their first cycle of the program with a committee of women, where everyone works and helps each other to get ahead. According to the survey on the elimination of poverty, the 10 find themselves below the poverty line, and are working to improve the economic situation of their families. In this group photo there are 11 people because there are members of the group that are not taking out a loan, but they do form part of the group and sign with their colleagues.

Santa is a member of this group. She works at a business selling clothing and cosmetics, and she says that she works hard every day even more so as to continue growing. She already knows that working is the only way for her to be able to help her family. Her goal is that with the help of this group, they all can make their lives better.

She is asking for this credit to invest in buying more clothing and cosmetics to have a greater variety to offer her customers.

In this group: Nelly, Sonia, Edith, Santa, Ana, Mercedes, Adelina, Francisca, Adelaida, Celia
