Virgen De Fatima Group's story

The community association "Virgen de Fátima" is made up of inhabitants of the San Luis community in the city of Ciudad Darío, Matagalpa, Nicaragua. It is a group made up of seven women and one man who have worked for 16 loan cycles to build their businesses little by little.

Yecenia del Carmen is 34 years old and works in the role of president of the community association. She has a sewing shop and sells from catalogs. She needs a loan to purchase bundles of fabric, sewing spare parts, and products like perfumes, creams, and makeup to stock her business a little more.

Her dream is to build a house for her children and to become financially independent for her family.

Help Yecenia to accomplish her dreams!

In this group: Karla Dolores, Argentina Del Socorro, Maria Aurora, Brenda Del Carmen, Luis Alfredo, Yecenia Del Carmen, Jery Maria, Grethel Maria
