Bello Horizonte Group's story

The group called "Bello Horizonte" is in the program for the elimination of poverty, where everyone strives for a better quality of life in order to be able to offer their loved ones everything that they were not able to have.

One of them is Yenifer, who sells shoes in order to help her family. She comments that her work is demanding, since she does it as a street vendor. She has an established clientele that always places orders with her, and it is with this that she helps her loved ones in order to give them everything that she was not able to have.

She is requesting this loan in order to be able to buy a variety of shoes and with this be able to give her customers the variety that they seek, and with this continue improving.
