Sagrada Familia Group's story

The “Sagrada Familia” group is in its first loan cycle in the women's communal bank program. They are doing the poverty elimination survey, in order to know the situation of each of them. This indicated that three of them have very limited income.

Ignacia is at the red level; that is to say with very low income, but she is aware that by means of her effort and work she will be able to grow, improve her living conditions, and also improve her business. She does laundry; that is to say she washes the clothing of her customers. She says that it is very heavy and demanding work, but she is happy with what she does, as it is decent and honest work.

She is applying for this loan so that she can buy soap, fabric softener, and other supplies she needs to continue growing and have better income with which to help her family.

In this group: Epifania, Ignacia, Fanny, Ada, Karina, Francisca, Dionisia, Elda, Myrna, Julia, Amalia, Eleuteria, Librada
