Virgen Del Rosario Group's story

Señora Maria started off this committee by organizing and inviting her friends to become a part of the Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras [Committee of Enterprising Women] program. It was from there that the group Virgen del Rosario came about. The 19 women who make up the group are very hardworking and enterprising and they are eager to fight to get ahead in life.

Señora Maria has a fast food counter where she sells food, drinks, candy and other items. She has a partner of 18 years and they have three children, two minors and one adult. Her goal is to continue expanding her business, thus providing her family with a better way of life i.e., food, a home and education. She describes herself as a very hardworking and enterprising person who fights day after day to give her family the best.

She is requesting the loan to buy meat, baked goods, vegetables, seasoning and other ingredients to continue producing the food that she sells and also to stock her business premises with drinks.
