Virgen De La Misericordia Group's story

Twenty-seven women belong to this bank with the goal of being able to get their loved ones ahead and so they don't have to suffer hardship. They're also in the poverty-elimination program, fighting to be able to overcome their poverty.

One of them is Rosalina, who works in sales. She has an ice-cream shop where she sells very tasty products to her customers. It's going very well for her and she said her business has enabled her to be able to help support her household and give them a better quality of life.

She's happy about this opportunity to be able to continue with her work and to keep on growing as a result.

She's requesting this loan to buy a variety of flavors of ice cream to sell so she can fulfill customer requests.
