A loan helped a member to purchase beef, chicken, ham, cheese, eggs and other ingredients.


Oasis Group's story

The Oasis committee is a united and enthusiastic group with 23 members. They are in the Décimo Segundo Ciclo, where everyone fights to be able to grow and get ahead. They all actively work within the group and look for ways to be able to achieve their goals and objectives.

One of the ladies is Rosa, who makes empanadas and travels around selling them. She comments that she makes sacrifices for her loved ones so they can have a better quality of life and not lack anything. She mentions that due to the crisis that has troubled the world, the Covid-19 pandemic has impeded that Rosa work normally and generate the means to be able to help her family. This has had consequences in her business.

She asks for this loan to be able to purchase ingredients to be able to continue making her meals, such as beef, chicken, ham, cheese, eggs and other ingredients.
