Dúo Solidario Alicia Y Helen Group's story

Alicia and Helen Solidarity Group

Sra. Alicia is 52 years old and has been managing a store for 15 years. She is very pleased with this business that God has given her. Even though her business is located along one of the alleyways in the town where she lives, there are always people who come to her store to buy. She currently gets many requests for water and sodas, but she does not have sufficient stock in her store. Her customers ask for sodas in cans and disposable containers, both in the jumbo and normal sizes. Alicia is also lacking in sugar, rice, and a few other basic staples. She has started to sell medicines such as acetaminophen tablets, panadol, tabcin, and other remedies, but she has very little in stock.

Alicia does not have enough money, but needs to have the products in her store so that her customers will not go elsewhere. For this reason, she will use her new loan to buy everything that she is lacking.
