Las Poderosas Group's story

Las Poderosas [the Mighty] is a communal bank comprising women heads of household who are striving for a higher quality of life for their loved ones. They are, moreover, part of the program to eliminate poverty.

One of the members, Yamily, makes and sells crocheted items. She is very good at what she does, and comments that her goal is to be able to continue with her work so she can offer her loved ones everything that she could not have. Yamily is happy for the opportunity to be part of the group, which will be of great help to her in achieving her goals.

Yamily is asking for this loan in order to purchase needles, yarn and other items so that she can continue with her work.

Please note: Only one person appears in the photo but this is a group loan. It was not possible to take a group photo because of the need to avoid crowds of people due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
