A loan helped a member to purchase seasonal clothing and a variety of shoes to sell.


Virgen Del Pilar Group's story

The group called Virgen del Pilar was formed by the joining of friends and neighbors from the city of Pilar, who seek the way to be able to improve their quality of life and that of their loved ones. They are in their loan cycle number 22 in the women's committee program.

Flavia is one of them, she works selling clothing and began with a small bag in which she had her clothing and visited her customers house by house. These days, she has a lovely climatized salon in her home where she awaits her customers with a great variety of clothing and shoes for all ages.

She asks for this loan to purchase seasonal clothing and shoes to be able to replace her stock. She is grateful for the opportunity she is receiving to be able to access this loan and, so, to manage to get ahead.

Note: There is only one person in the photo, but this is a group loan. A group photo was not possible to prevent the gathering of people due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this group: Flavia, Karen, Andrea, Clotilde, Cristina, Liz, Ursulina, Rocío, Ramona, Maria
