La Florida Group's story

The group “La Florida” is made up of 7 enterprising women that are in their 7th loan cycle, the majority of them being residents of the area. Augusta is one of the members. She is married with 2 independent children. At her 55 years of age Augusta feels happy as she has managed to improve her home and maintain her business. Currently she works selling clothing items which she does in a market. The business has generated income for her household. Her latest loan will go to the purchase of jackets and sweaters. Her greatest desire is to purchase her own stand as she currently rents one. The group “La Florida” is grateful for the loan provided as it makes their progress possible. Augusta is the first on the right side in the back row and is wearing a white shirt and blue jacket.

In this group: Aurea, Irene, Rosa Isabel, Elizabeth, Augusta, Rocio Pilar, Yessica
