Leida Beatriz's story

El Grupo De Crédito De Colorado [Colorado Lending Group] meets every two weeks in Colorado in the county Montecristi, known for its rich precolonial culture and for its handcrafts, which are recognized nationally and internationally. It is famous for its Panama hats.
It is here that Leída lives. She is 69 years old; she is married and has 4 adult children from this relationship, one of whom still lives with her. Her husband is a driver; he has a tanker and a dump truck.
Leída is a very good wife who is requesting the loan for her husband’s business. He has a dump truck and a tanker, and he makes his living selling stone materials and water. Since in the area where they live there is no potable water, her husband takes advantage of the opportunity to sell it to people who need this vital liquid. He also delivers stone material to several construction companies. Her husband has been doing this business for more than 17 years, with which he has supported his family.
This loan is to buy water and stone material. She has been in the Grupo De Crédito since it began, and she likes it because of the help that the bank has given them. Her dream is to buy another new car.
