Pirapo Group's story

This group is called Pirapo, it is a new group made up of enterprising women striving to provide a better quality of life for their families. They are part of the poverty elimination scheme; they work hard to better themselves and to have a better future.
Miguela is one of the group members; she makes a living by selling cosmetics of all types. Her sales have given her the means to provide her loved ones with a dignified quality of life. Miguela decided to join the communal bank in order to continue to provide a better future for her loved ones. She remarks that she joined the bank with the goal of improving herself and to be able to invest in her business so that it can continue to grow and improve.
She is applying for this loan to buy a variety of cosmetics to sell, and in this way continue to meet the needs of her customers.
