Damas Valinetes Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables to sell.

Damas Valinetes Group's story

The group called Damas Valientes is in its 13th loan cycle in the women's committee program, where they all committed to working and helping each other get ahead. They are completing the poverty elimination questionnaire, to be able to know their life situation and, with this, to be able to improve themselves and get ahead.

Yrma is one of them, who works selling fresh fruits and vegetables and states that, with her business, it has allowed her to be able to offer her loved ones better living conditions than those she had. Yrma works at this and, with great effort and sacrifice, has been improving herself and, with this, has been able to achieve her goals.

She asks for this loan to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables to sell and, in this way, to be able to give her loved ones the best.
