Inmaculada Group's story

Inmaculada is a group from the city of Este, where all of the members have been working together for 16 cycles. They are very enthusiastic women, that are also part of the program for the elimination of poverty. They participated in the survey for the elimination of poverty so they could learn about their own situations. One of the members is Jessica. In her survey, she had a level of poverty at level one, which means that she has little income and that she needs to keep working and fighting. Among the work she does, she sells different types of blankets and she asks for this loan so that she can buy a large amount of blankets for resale. As part of relevant trainings and follow-ups, they have also made a business plan so that they can have better control over their earnings.
