Vecinas Alegres Group's story

The Vecinas Alegres ["Happy Neighbours"] group is in its sixth cycle. The members are doing a survey on poverty elimination and know each member's situation. Two of the members are below the poverty line; they have very low incomes.
Emilce is one of the group members with a low income. Despite this, she works hard to get ahead and grow. Among work that she does, she says that she is starting to stock her kiosk in order to have a greater variety of candy, biscuits, and basic staples like rice, noodles, and sugar. It is necessary to mention her hard work and her desire to get ahead.
She is requesting this loan for the purchase of items for her kiosk, such as candy, food, and drinks. This will help her to solidify her business plan and improve her income.

In this group: Emilce, Amelia, Tranquilina, Fátima, Sixta, Cinthia, Bonifacia, Gladys, Nimia, Petrona, Teodolina, Liliam, Tania
