Somos Progreso Group's story

The group "Somos Progreso" includes ten members, responsible micro-entrepreneurs who want to improve their quality of life.

Paulina is 25 years old. She and her partner live with two dependent children. She has a business selling breakfasts, such as egg sandwiches, soy milk, and many other varieties. For about two years, she has been paying off her debts with this business, which is going very well. Her greatest desire is to own her own home.
