Virgen Del Carmen Group's story

This group was formed thanks to Mrs. Albina, the president, who lives in the city of Concepción. The president wanted to help her friends by giving them the idea that each one could progress if they formed a group.

They were all happy to establish the women entrepreneur group called "COMITÉ VIRGEN DEL CARMEN". There are ten members and most of them have small businesses selling food items such as pies, seafood, sausages, chips, cakes, or sweets to obtain more income for their families.

They are requesting a loan to buy ingredients for their food products such as meat, spices, eggs, etc. They all hope to be able to get ahead for their individual and community development.

In this group: Claudelina , Porfiria , Higinia , Asuncion , Andresa , Albina , Margarita , Lidia , Luciana , Ilda
