A loan helped a member to buy a variety of clothes to sell.

La Poderosa Group's story

The group named “La Poderosa” is in its 19th loan cycle with the Women’s Committee Program. All of the members are working and helping one another to move forward. They are enterprising women who work hard on behalf of their families so that they can get ahead and lack nothing.

One of the members is Sra. Milagros, who sells clothes. She mentions that her work has enabled her to provide a decent quality of life for her loved ones so that they can avoid any type of hardship. Milagros is a person who does not give up and strives to achieve a better future without hardship for her family. She also says that due to the worldwide crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, she has not been able to work normally. As a result, she has not been able to meet all of her obligations. Despite this challenge, she looks for ways to excel and wakes up each day so that she can continue providing the best for her family.

Milagros is requesting a loan to buy more clothes so that she can invest in her business. She will be able to stock up on inventory so that she can continue her sales, satisfy her customers, and invest in her business.
