A loan of $3,100 helped a member working capital.


Las Autonomicas Group's story

The 'Las Autonómicas' group is represented by Marcela and includes a number of members who have worked in previous groups with Fundacion Agrocapital. They have gotten together to form a new group maD. up of responsible and dedicated people. The members work selling products including food, cosmetics, bread and clothing, and in other fields including military service and domestic cleaning services, while others are employed by private companies.

The competition in the labour market is difficult these days, when the majority of the population offer their services at the lowest prices. However the experience and human qualities of the group members spurs them to continue on without worrying about the competition.

The loan will be used to buy basic supplies and materials, and to repair work tools, in order to offer better service. The group members are familiar with working in solidarity groups, and know how to manage funds well and responsibly fulfil their obligations.

In this group: Marcela, Marisol, Zulma, Maria Ysabel, Pabla, Shirley Pamela, Adalid, Paola Marcela, Dalcy, Luis Alberto, Dora, Damarys, Jose, Ingrid
