Virgen Del Rosario Group's story

The Virgen del Rosario group consists of 17 women who work together in a coordinated and organized way. All the women put in the maximum effort in order to be able to make headway for the children and family that depend on them. The members defined themselves as heads of the family who are not afraid to work and are willing to do whatever it takes so their children don't suffer the same hardships they have had to endure. One of the members is Enma, who makes a living selling all kinds of vegetables. She says that she gets up very early every day to look for fresh products that she can later sell. She does this every day with the desire to bring in more income for her family. She is requesting the loan to purchase more vegetables, such as lettuce, tomatoes, cabbage and others, because she knows that having more kinds of vegetables will attract even more customers than she already has. Her dream is to one day set up a small post in her home where she can sell her products.

In this group: Geronima, Enma, Calixta, Buenaventura, Francisca, Maria, Marciana, Pablina, Angelina, Gerarda, Valentina, Calixta, Gladys, Elida, Esperanza, Julia, Maria
