La Virgen Group's story

Eighteen clients compose the committee called La Virgen, They all have an undertaking to generate the means of getting ahead with their children. They are participating in the Poverty Elimination program, fighting to provide the best to their loved ones.

One of them is Marcelina. She is a very humble woman who earns her living through great effort and sacrifice by raising, working with and selling pigs. She mentions that she is pleased with her work even though it is humble as through it she helps to support her family.. Marcelina comments that she joined the committee so she could grow and continue to improve for her family.

She is requesting this loan to buy pigs to raise and feed for them. She is pleased with the opportunity that she is receiving from the Fundación, as she would not be offered it elsewhere.
