La Rosa De Guadalupe Group's story

The “La Rosa De Guadalupe” communal bank is made up 0f 7 responsible and hardworking members who work in different commercial activities. Rosario started with the business of selling groceries and with her wish to get ahead and the good use of her income, she also opened a bookstore in her home. She tells us that she feels happy with what she has been able to do. Her next goal is to open a furniture store and see her children become people with good careers. The loan she has asked for will be used to buy groceries, beverages and school supplies. Rosario is 40 years old, married and has 4 children. Right now she is still supporting 2 of them. The “La Rosa De Guadalupe” group is grateful to the people who made this loan possible. Rosario is in front, the second one in the middle. She is wearing a flowered blouse and black pants.
