A loan helped a member to buy garlic by the bag, wraps and labels.


Las Distinguidas Group's story

This group is part of the "Poverty Stoplight" program, where members work hard every day to better themselves and move forward. They are entrepreneurs who look for a way to better themselves and improve their quality of life.

One of the members is Digna, who runs a business selling garlic. In the latest poverty measurement poll, her result was a level 3, which means that her continuous effort has improved her situation.

She is a hard-working woman who is dedicated to generating more income in order to continue providing the best for her loved ones.

She is requesting a loan to buy garlic by the bag, wraps and labels so she can continue with this humble work.
