Santa Librada Group's story

The Santa Librada group is in its fourth cycle of the women's communal bank program, in which all the members committed to working and helping each other to get head. These women are in the poverty elimination program and using the survey of 50 poverty indicators to distinguish their individual circumstances. Lilian is a member of this group whose survey indicated that she is at level one, meaning she has a low income. She sells clothing and wants to increase her income from this job which will help her to continue providing for her family and preventing hardships for them. She has worked since she was young and this is why she is continuing to grow. Lilian requests this loan in order to buy assorted clothing with which to continue her sales and increase her income so she can help family members who depend on her.
