Medalla Milagrosa Group's story

The group was formed thanks to Mrs. Maria who had heard of a group of entrepreneurial woman and was fascinated by the idea. So she organized her friends and neighbors who were delighted to agree to make up the Committee that they named Medalla Milagrosa [Miraculous Medal]. The committee currently has ten members, all of whom define themselves as hardworking and responsible women. They all fight for a better future for themselves and their families. They came together with that purpose and want to fulfill it.

Mrs. Maria works selling fast food such as sandwiches, empanadas, croquettes and other foods. Every day at a very early hour she gets up to prepare the foods she is going to sell. She asserts that every sacrifice is a small one when it comes to achieving wellbeing for her family.

She is seeking the loan to purchase ingredients for the foods she prepares, such as spices, meat, garden produce and other ingredients.

In this group: Maria, Ninfa, Ramona, Maria, Carmen, Estela, Olga, Josefina, Fátima, Mariela
