Las Poderosas Group's story

The group called Las Poderosas [The Powerful Women] is in its first cycle of the women's group program, where they all work and help each other to get ahead. They are also in the poverty elimination program, where they all are fighting for a better quality of life.

Mercedes is one of the members of this group; she works selling vegetables door-to-door. She says that her work is modest, and she is working hard to improve it because it is how she helps sustain her household and her family. She is a self-sacrificing person who makes an effort to find a way to continue forward.

She is requesting this loan in order to buy fresh vegetables to sell, and in this way she can continue with her work.

Note: Only one person appears in the photo, but this is a group loan. It was not possible to take the group photo in order to avoid a congregation of people, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
