A loan helped a member to buy an assortment of variety store items and in this way continue with sales.


Rosa Mistica Group's story

The group's name is "Rosa Mistica" [Mystic Rose]. They are entrepreneurial women who are looking for a better quality of life for their families. They united in this committee because they saw an opportunity not only for themselves, but also for their families. They are also in the poverty elimination program looking for the way to overcome their poverty situation.
One of the members is Daisy who earns a living selling variety store items. She comments that she has an established clientele since she always has all types of products and this is what her clients like best. She says that she goes to a lot of effort to be able to give her loved ones all that she could not have. It is for this reason that she begins her work very early everyday.
She is asking for this loan to be able to buy an assortment of variety store items and this way continue with sales the way she has been. She and her fellow group members are grateful for the opportunity they receive to improve their living conditions.

In this group: Rogelia, Liz, Maura, Marlini, Aida, Petrona, Marina, Calixta, Adalia, Liliana, Daisy, Patricia, Sali, Emilsa, Belen, Fanny, Elizabeth, Graciela
