Medalla Milagrosa Group's story

The formation of this committee was thanks to the initiative of Aida from the city of Carapeguá. The group is called “Medalla Milagrosa” (Miraculous Medal) and is currently in its first cycle with fifteen members. They define themselves as very active ladies who stand out in their work environments.

They joined together to improve their enterprises. Others, however, are starting their first activities in hopes of generating their own income and thus help their families attain better quality of life.

Aida sells all sorts of clothes. She feels completely fulfilled in this work because thanks to the sacrifice she’s done she’s managed to support her family giving them a better standard of living. As far as her clientele is concerned, she has quite a bit of demand so she’d like to expand the variety of goods she has to sell. One of her dreams is to be able to have a locale that she can sell her wares at.

She is asking for the loan to buy seasonal clothing for subsequent resale which will help her meet customer demand. She is grateful to the Fundación for the support it’s provided her.

In this group: Magnolia Elizabeth, Maximina, Jessica, Wilma, Marta, Jorgelina, Rosaria, Johana, Juliana, Antonina, Aida, Francisca, Miryan, Maria*, Nilda*
