Virgen De Fatima Group's story

The group is called "Virgen de Fatima". The group is in its first cycle. It has 18 members, all of whom are very satisfied with their work with the Fundación. They seek a better quality of life for their families. The group is united, from the Santaní zone. All are very dedicated and responsible women.

One of the members is Vicenta, who works selling food. She herself prepares her products every day. She says that, through her work, she has been able to get her loved ones ahead. She notes that, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, her business and income have been affected; she could not work as usual, which had a great effect. But she does not let herself be defeated and seeks the means to be able to grow and improve.

She requests this loan to be able to buy ingredients for her food, such as meat, condiments, vegetables, greens, and other products. She is grateful for the opportunity to be able to invest in her business, which will be of much help towards getting her business going again.
