Aura Lista Group’s story

Maria Carlota is a member of a group called “Aura”, and all of her colleagues know her as a woman dedicated to the family she has raised with her husband Rafael, they have three daughters, with the youngest still economically dependent on them. Mari, as she is known, decided to invest her savings and her free time in selling clothing, which has changed her life since she is happy to be a part of her community’s economy. With her earnings she has been able to grow her business and gradually attract many more customers. She will use the loan to buy pants, blouses, skirts and t-shirts which her customers have asked for. “There is nothing better than earning your own money and benefiting the ones you love most,” she says with a big smile.
