A loan of $2,950 helped a member to buy socks, pants, and underwear.

El Rosario Group's story

The "El Rosario" group has eight enterprising members who look to improve their lives every day. One member of the group is 66-year-old Rosa. She is separated, has five now independent children, and for six years she has been working selling socks, underwear and more as a street vendor. This business has allowed Rosa to improve her home. On this occasion she is applying for a loan in order to buy socks, pants, and underwear. Her biggest dream is to have a stall where she can display her products and stop working as a street vendor. The "El Rosario" group is grateful to those who are making this loan possible. In the photo, Rosa is second on the left, standing up, and wearing a dark red/pink top.

In this group: Dora, Celinda, Lidia, Justina, Blanca Nancy, Carmen Nelly, Violeta Luz, Rosa
