A loan of $2,575 helped a member to buy ingredients for preparing foods, and especially to buy meat.

Tarumandy Poty Group's story

The main contact at the beginning of this group was Ms. Rocio Carolina L., who invited and organized her friends to come together to join the "Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras" ["Enterprising Women's Program"].

Ms. Felicita E. de Olmedo is one of the members and she is very satisfied with her work. Every day, she sells a large quantity of empanadas [typical stuffed bread pastries] and natural juices. She says that this has helped her a lot, and that she feels fully realized as a woman now that she can help her family significantly with the profits she earns from selling foods.

She is requesting this loan to buy meat, as the current price is rather high, so she wants to take advantage of this loan to buy in a larger quantity.
