Perla Del Norte Group's story

This group is called Perla del Norte and is made up of women heads of household who are fighting for a better quality of life for their families. They are from the city of Concepción, which is in a difficult-to-access area where there are armed groups.

One of the members is Maria, who is married and has five children. She strives to provide for her children so that they do not have to endure any kind of hardship. Her business is selling food, and she has a pizzeria in which she works every day. Her business generates income to cover the needs of her home.

She is requesting this loan to buy ingredients for her pizzeria. She will buy flour, vegetables, eggs, butter, and cheese so she can deliver her well-made products to her customers.
