Las Mañaneras #1 Group's story

Pastor Paula (in the center of the photo, dressed in a pink T-shirt and a flowered skirt) is the treasurer of "Las Mañaneras #1" association. For the past 9 years she has worked supported by loans. Paula is a widow with 9 children, all of whom are adults now.

Her dream is, above all, to make improvements to her house in order to have a tranquil winter.

To achieve this, she wishes to continue working and, to do so, she needs a loan to continue selling catalog products, and to plant corn, beans, and wheat, to which she is dedicated as a good farmer.
