Obra Misionera Group's story

“Obra Misionera” is the group formed by 17 women from the city of Villa Elisa. They are women who very much want to grow and make progress; they hope for a better future for themselves and for their children and this is why they strive to the maximum effort to reach this dream.

Maximina is one of the members of the group and she’s also its President. She comments that she and her fellow members want to provide a better standard of living for their families and also continue to help with household expenses. She comments that her way of earning her livelihood is selling fruit and in her free time she recycles.

She requested the loan to stock up on seasonal fruit because this way she’ll be well-stocked and be able to meet customer demand.
