Virgen Del Pilar Group's story

The Virgen del Pilar group is in its 13th cycle. They are hardworking and sacrificing women who look for a way to be able to overcome and get ahead, and who work hard to achieve their dreams.

Mirian is one member who earns a living through sales. She has a pantry where she works every day from early in the morning. She is a self-sacrificing person who despite her daily difficulties, does not allow herself to be defeated and looks for a way to help her family. Mirian is one of the members, and she is also the president of the group. Her goal is to be able to help her other companions and that they all move forward together.

She is requesting a loan to purchase various products to be able to stock her pantry such as vegetables, meats, baked goods, dairy products, and other products to continue with her sales.
