Fuerza Femenina Group's story
The committee is called Fuerza Femenina (Feminine Strength) because they consider themselves strong women with the will to work and get ahead. There are 12 female members that work hard daily so that they can get ahead, and through their work, help their families. Maria is a member of the committee and tells us that she sells all kinds of food, like empanadas (meat pies), sandwiches, milanesas (breaded meat) and other types of foods. Her sales are growing, so she would like to continue investing in her business. She is requesting a loan to buy beef, chicken, seasoning condiments and other ingredients so she can continue working, and that way, offer her clients good service.
