La Hermosa Group's story

This group's name is La Hermosa. Its members are all women heads-of-household who are fighting to improve their loved ones' quality of life and to spare them any hardship. They are also within the poverty elimination program.

Maria is one of the members of this group. She is a single mother fighting to support her son and give him a decent life free from the hardship she had to endure. Maria works selling natural remedies and also hamburgers. She says her business is modest but has allowed her to be able to help her family.

She is requesting this loan to invest in purchasing natural remedies to sell so that she can continue working hard to support her family and get ahead.
