Virgen Del Carmen Group's story

The Virgen del Carmen communal bank is an old group that is in its 40th women's committee loan cycle. It is in the poverty elimination program and all the members strive for a better quality of life for their familes.

One of them is Imilsa who is a seamstress and has a modest sewing shop where she works every day starting very early in the morning. She is a self-sacrificing person who seeks ways to improve her situation every day and give her loved ones the best she can. Imilsa says she joined the group out of a necessity to continue improving and supporting her family. She is grateful for the opportunity to have joined the group, as it will be very helpful toward getting training to develop further.

She is applying for this loan to buy fabric in bulk, thread, elastic and other products.

Note: There is only one person in the photo even though this is a group loan. A group photo was not possible because of social distancing due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
