Las Perlas Group's story

This group is known as Las Perlas. They have chosen the goal of being able to grown, not only economically, but also as individuals, in order to be able to offer their loved ones all that they couldn't have. Additionally, they are part of the poverty-elimination program, fighting every day to be able to improve and rise up.

One of the members is Mirta, who works selling regional dishes that she herself makes, and then she goes out to sell them. Through her work, she wants to continue giving her family the best so that they don't have to go without any type of necessity, as she did.

She is thankful for the opportunity she's receiving to be able to continue with her work as she's been doing, and with it, to continue helping her people.

She's requesting this loan to be able to invest in the purchase of ingredients to be able to make her regional food, such as meat, baked goods, vegetables, condiments, and other products.
