A loan of $3,475 helped a member to buy water meters.


Comision Vecinal Del Barrio Azucena Group's story

This neighbourhood commission in Coronel Oviedo's Azucena district was formed on February 13, 2004, since when it has been supplying drinking water to the residents of the Azucena district. They currently have their own well and water tank, which enables them to supply water to 370 families, meaning that approximately 1,480 people have access to this commodity which is so vital to mankind. They are applying for the loan, in the first instance, to buy water meters so they can make users aware of the need to use water carefully and to continue offering this vital service with the same high quality. This water supply business is benefitting the whole community and so they are seeking the loan so they can offer a better service, continue to develop the business and make this vital liquid available to more people. In the group photo, we see Desiderio (the president of the water supply business), Leonor (the treasurer) and Cristian (the vice-treasurer).

In this group: Desiderio, Leonor, Christian
