La Nueva Milagrosa Group's story

The Nueva Milagrosa group is made up of 26 women who are in their third loan cycle in the women's bank program, in which they all work and help each other get ahead. They're also in the poverty-elimination program.

Marta is one of them. She's also the secretary of the group. She has a grocery store with all types of products, and she said her job has enabled her to be able to get her loved ones ahead and cover the needs of her household.

She's married and the mother of a family, and she said her goal is to continue helping her loved ones, especially her children, so they have a better quality of life and don't suffer any hardship.

She's requesting this loan to buy a variety of products to sell in her store, such as beverages, baked goods, vegetables, fruits, canned goods, dairy products, and additional products to continue with her business and help her family.
