Rosa Mistica Group's story

The committe named, "Rosa Mistica" (Mystic Rose), in honor of the virgen Mary who is the patron saint of the group. All of the members are women who have had to give up a lot but wish to get ahead alongside their families and have a better quality of life that can allow them to live with dignity. Guillermina is one of the most active members of the group; she sells fruits at a rented location because she has been unable to obtain her own spot. She dedicates herself to this business since it has helped her economically support her family. Fruit is a product of daily consumption which is why her customer base is increasing. Her current challenge is that she has not been able to fulfill her client's demand which is why she is requesting the loan, in order to purchase fruit in greater quantities and sell them to the customers she supplies.

In this group: Gloria, Rossana, Silvia, Veronica, Sonia, Sonia, Nilsa, Andrea, Guillermina, Heriberta, Otilia, Ninfa, Diana, Tania, Gladys, Silvina*
