Virgen De La Puerta Group's story

Eileen is a member of the “Virgen De La Puerta” communal bank, which is made up of 8 enthusiastic members who have been working as group for more than 2 years. Eileen is 36 years old, separated, and has 1 daughter. She currently has a store that sells a variety of items, and she has had this business for more than 10 years. She started her business as a result of separating from her daughter’s father. She feels proud because it is through her work and perseverance that she has improved her business and supported her daughter in her education. Her greatest wish is to see her daughter become a professional. She will use the money from the loan to buy shoes and sandals for the season. The “Virgen De La Puerta” communal bank group is thankful for the loan that has been granted. Eileen is seated, the second from the left, wearing a green shirt.
