Nuestros Lirios De Los Valles Group's story

The communal bank group "Lirios de los Valles" is composed of 12 members, all single mothers with 20 children between them. They are from the northern region of Leon. These women are all hardworking and very responsible, with a great desire to help their families get ahead and provide their children with more opportunities.

Angela is the group coordinator. She has a small grocery store from which she sells basic goods in small quantities such as rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, juice, matches, cheese and cream. She works in her store for 12 hours a day. She will use this loan as working capital to stock her business with new groceries, and hopes to improve her income by doing so in the near future.

In this group: Isaura Del Carmen, Adilsa Ramona, Virginia Gertrudis, Delma Auxiliadora, Telma Vilma, Maria Auxiliadora , Carina Libette, Mercedes , Angela Del Socorro, Norma, Marfalia Ofelia, Maria Olivia
