Virgen Del Carmen Group's story

The communal bank 'Virgen del Carmen" is a group that is on its fifth cycle. Their goal is to grow, not just financially, but also as people. They are all enterprising women who are looking for ways to improve themselves and get ahead.

Antonio is one such member. She is married and a mother. She makes a living selling food from her home. She provides delicious food for her neighbours and for customers who are visiting the neighbourhood.

She remarks that her sales are very good due to the high quality of what she sells.

Antonio's goal for the future is to build a large room in order to also provide fruit and vegetables.

She is seeking this loan to buy ingredients to make her food such as meat, bread, vegetables, oil, napkins and other items.

Please note: There is just one person in the photograph even though this is a group loan. The group photograph was not possible so as to avoid too many people gathering due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
