De Cristo La Gloria 4 Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy clothing for her store and items like flour, oil, and salami for her fried food business.

De Cristo La Gloria 4 Group's story

Vetania is an extraordinary woman. She's a mother and she also has two businesses, a clothing store and a fried food business. In everything she does she wants to support her three children, who live at home with her. She wants her earnings to be enough to improve the house they live in together.

She has had her two businesses for 30 years, but she wants them to grow, which is why she needs more merchandise. For the fried food she needs flour, oil, salami, etc.; and for the store, a bundle of clothing.

With your help she can continue to work and support her family. She's going to use her earnings on her children's lives and education.

Thank you for contributing to De Cristo La Gloria 4.
