Virgen De Fátima Group's story

The name of this excellent group of women is "Virgen de Fatima" and it is located in the city of Ita. It is thanks to Teresa, a fruits merchant, that the group of 22 women was formed following her contact with the assessor at a weekly reunion held in the region to inform herself on the work carried out by the Comite de Mujeres Emprendedoras. They are working very comfortably on their 8th loan cycle. They all have activities to earn an income. They help each other to reach the common objectives of the group. At this time Zunilda requests a loan to purchase clothing, cosmetics, fruits, and vegetables. She has a modest business selling this variety of products. This is the source of income that she earns to support her family and herself.

In this group: Teresa, Luz María, Zunilda, Liz, María Eva, Luisa, Gabriela, Elvira, Felipa, Margarita, Antonia, Concepción, María, Alicia, Norma, Caren, Estelvina, Lidia, María Norma, Pablina, Nancy, Verónica
