Maristas Group's story

The Maristas Group is in the second loan cycle with the women's committee programme, where all the women are within the poverty elimination programme. They are all fighting to be able to improve themselves and move forward.

One of the members is Angelica, who earns a living selling clothes. Through her humble business venture, she generates the means to be able to move her loved ones forward, so they do not want for anything. She joined the committee with the goal of being able to train herself and, with this, be able to continue helping to maintain her family and not let them want for anything.

She asked for this loan to be able to buy blouses, shirts, shorts, trousers, t-shirts, skirts, sweatshirts, breeches, underwear and other items of clothing to sell. She is grateful for the opportunity to be able to continue making sales as she has been doing.
