Las Perlas Group's story

The group called "Las Perlas" (The Pearls) is in the poverty elimination program. All the women work hard to overcome their poverty.

Mirta is one of the members of this group. She aims to get training and improve herself. She makes a living selling traditional foods. She is very good at what she does, and she has an established customer base now. She is an enterprising, hard-working, determined person who does not give up.

She is seeking this loan for the purchase of ingredients such as flour, eggs, butter, oil, meat, vegetables, and other products in order to continue making the dishes that she sells.
