Luz De Luna 27 Group's story

The LUZ DE LUNA 27 [Light of the Moon 27] communal bank consists of eight members: six women and two men.

Señora Alicia, the bank president, is 44 years old and the mother of four school-aged children. She works selling bagged potato chips to various neighborhood stores and schools where she's built a customer base. Señora Alicia will use funds from this loan to purchase cooking utensils, such as pots, to increase production. This business presents many challenges, such as getting up very early to deliver products.

Señora Alicia will use funds from this loan to purchase supplies so she can keep improving her business, expand it, and save more money. Señora Alicia's ambition is to open her own store where she can sell her products. Alicia is young and anxious to get ahead, so she's grateful to lenders for the support they're providing her.

In this group: Alicia, Esperanza, Florentina, Edwin Pedro, Maria Laura, Jyssely Shyrle , Claudia Dalila, Jesus Ovidio
