Medalla Milagrosa Group's story

The group is called 'Medalla Milagrosa', it is part of the women's committee program, where they all strive to improve themselves and seek a better future for their families. They are aware that teamwork is essential for them to achieve their goals together.

Among the group members, Carolina stands out. She makes a living by selling cosmetics. She says that she started modestly and that with sacrifice she has improved, but she also comments that due to the covid19 pandemic, her business was affected and has resulted in negative economic consequences. Despite this she looks for a way to be able to better herself and continue to improve. Her family is her reason for striving and she wants to give them everything she could not have.

She asks for this loan to invest a little capital in her business to be able to continue with her work. She wants to buy assorted cosmetics in order to attract more clients and get out of the crisis she went through.
