Emprendedoras De Costa Guazu Group's story

The Emprendedoras De Costa Guazu Group was formed by neighbors who came together because they were looking for ways to improve their quality of life. They are in their fourth loan cycle of the women's committee program, and they are also part of the poverty elimination program.

One of the group members is Fátima, who is a married mother. She mentions that she works selling meals, and that although her business is modest, it has allowed her to meet her loved ones' needs so they do not lack anything. Fátima is a fighter who does not give up and who strives, come what may, for a better quality of life for her loved ones so they do not endure hardships.

She is happy for the opportunity to be part of the group, which will be very helpful to her.

She is requesting this loan to buy ingredients for her meals so she can continue her work just as she has been doing. She will buy vegetables, meats, condiments, chicken, eggs, and other products.
