A loan of $3,900 helped a member to purchase ice cream to sell later.

Jessica Milagros Group's story

22 women of the city of Itá came together with the goal of searching for better well-being for their families. These women are people who fight and sacrifice, who start their days very early and return home very late at night. They currently find themselves in the fourth cycle of the foundation's program for entrepreneurial women.

One of the members is Rosalba, who tells us that she sells ice cream. This business brings her a very good income, especially on very hot days. She says that through much hard work, she has been able to move her family forward and help to cover the family's expenses.

She is asking for the loan to purchase ice cream of all flavors, since the hot weather is coming and she wants to be able to meet the demand.
