Virgen Del Carmen Group's story

This is a united group made up of female heads of families who work hard for their families in order to give them a better quality of life. They are part of the poverty elimination program, where they all seek a way to improve themselves and get a better quality of life.

Estela is one of them, a very entrepreneurial and hardworking lady. She has a restaurant where she offers her clients delicious meals that she prepares herself.

She is a very hard-working person who works hard for her family to give them a better quality of life and not have to go through any kind of needs. Estela is happy for the opportunity to be part of the group, which will be very helpful.

She asks for this loan to buy ingredients to make her meals, such as meat, chicken, vegetables, spices and other products to continue with her work.
