Virgen Del Rosario Group's story

This group consists of 10 members who looks for ways to grow and get ahead. Their joint work and effort have allowed them to improve slowly. They belong to the poverty eradication program.

One of the members is Lorena, married with two children. She works hard to give her children a dignified life without hardships, and to help her husband cover the household expenses.

Lorena makes a living selling empanadas. She says she wakes up early to start preparing the empanadas that she sells door-to-door. Nowadays, she has an established clientele who always buy from her because her food is delicious.

She requests the loan to buy supplies to make empanadas such as vegetables, meat, chicken, ham, cheese, leafy vegetables, condiments, and other supplies.

Note: Though there is only one person in the photo, this is a group loan. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and to avoid group gatherings, it was not possible to take the group photo.
