La Victoria Group's story

"La Victoria" is the name of this group that includes 16 women from the city of Mariano Roque Alonso. They are all tenacious, hardworking and enterprising women. They formed a group with the idea of working together so that they could get ahead and help their families.

One of the members is Cinthia, who has a recycling business. She comments that through her work she has been able to help her family and give them what they need. She says that she sacrifices a lot for her work, since every day she must get up in the very early hours of the morning to go through the streets collecting recyclable products. She says that she is very proud of what she does, because it is decent and honest work.

She requests a loan to buy recyclable products to re-sell, and in this way have a better profit margin. She is grateful to the Fundacion for giving her this opportunity.
