La Alegria Group's story

The group called “La Alegria” is in its first loan cycle with the women’s committee program, where all of them work together and help each other to get ahead. They are doing an elimination of poverty survey, which helps them measure the income of each member.

Alba is one of the members of the group. She is a very hardworking and entrepreneurial person who works hard to get ahead and help her family. She makes food of all kinds, and things are going very well for her. She has a lot of customers who buy her foods. She explains that her dream is to be able to have a large food business so she can have a better income and help her family more.

She is requesting this loan to buy vegetables, condiments, meats, chicken, and other ingredients so she can continue making the foods she sell and also be able to increase her income and get out of poverty.

In this group: Liduvina, Irene, Carmen, Francisca, Lourdes, Dionicia, Ross, Stela, Arami, Delia, Fatima, Isidora, Gloria, Alba, Lidia, Marina*, Josefa*
