Madre Lider Group's story

This group is called Madre Líder and is in its first loan cycle with the women's committee program. It is made up of twelve women, all neighbors and friends from the area, and they do everything possible to get ahead with their families.

Evangelista stands out among them. She works very hard, selling from her grocery and butcher store. She lives with her husband and children and strives to get them ahead. She mentions that she joined the group as she saw in it an opportunity to reach some goals and grow. She is applying for this loan to buy vegetables, fruits, baked goods, dairy products and more in order to continue with her sales as she's done to date.
