Santa Lucia Group's story

The group Santa Lucia is in its 23rd loan cycle with the women's committee, where everyone works and helps each other to get ahead. They are doing the poverty elimination survey, where 5 of the women are below the poverty line; that is to say, they should continue fighting to improve their living conditions.

One of the members is Juliana, who in her last survey showed a poverty level within level one. What this means is that she should keep making an effort to improve her living conditions and those of her family through effort and continuous work. Regarding the work that she does, she sells all kinds of products, such as clothing and also costume jewelry. Juliana is also fighting to be able to give her family everything that she was not able to have, and in this way, be able to avoid their being in need. Juliana is requesting this loan for the purchase of clothing, shoes, costume jewelry, etc., which will help her business plan to take shape, helping her to improve her earnings.

In this group: Mirian, Juliana, Ramona, Maria, Elena, Susana, Julia, Mabel, Liz, Laura, Luisa, Daysi, Perla, Hipolita, Maria, Petrona, Lourdes, Maria, Cinthia
