Virgen De Fatima Group's story

The group Virgen de Fatima is made up of 26 women who are in their 15th cycle of the Committee of Women Program, where they are all fighting for a better quality of life for their families, so that they do not lack for any necessities.

One of the members is Felina, who, through her sewing, has been able to help support her family, and she is seeking the way to be able to continue working to help support her loved ones.

Felina says that her business and her income have been affected by the Covid 19 pandemic, and this has had a great impact upon her. She is a self-sacrificing person who, in spite of the daily difficulties, seeks the way to better herself and continue to give the best to her family.

Felina is requesting this loan to be able to invest in the purchase of fabric, thread, elastic material, buttons, and other items, in order to continue with her sales as she has been doing.
