La Fortuna Group's story

This communal bank is called “La Fortuna.” It is a new group, whose members want to advance and improve their lives. The members participate in the “Poverty Stoplight” survey, which identifies the situation of each woman and how she can work and grow.

One of the members is Silvia, who showed an average level of income in her survey. By selling jewelry, she fights to get ahead and give her family everything that she could not have.

Silvia requests this loan to buy a variety of jewelry to sell. With the loan she can continue her work, striving to improve living conditions for herself and her family.

In this group: Valvina, Silvia, Ilda, Francisca, Ynosencia, Blanca, Maria, Carmelina, Rumilda, Bernarda, Eduarda, Silvia, Delia, Maria, Eusebia, Elida, Zunilda
