Virgen De Guadalupe Group's story

The communal bank “Virgen De Guadalupe” comprises a group of 8 responsible members, who have the same goal to keep making progress each day. Felicitas is one of the members. She is 49 years old and the single mother of 3 children, one of whom she continues to support.

Felicitas began as a street vendor of sweets. Wishing to improve herself and offer a better life to her children, she decides to open another business where she could earn more income. Now she sells fast food like wings, chicken, skewered grilled meats, etc. With her hard work, Felicitas has been able to educate her children and improve their house.

Her next goal is to set up a shop offering consumer staples. With the loan she requested, she would buy supplies for her business, such as oil, chicken, potatoes, and some household items. Felicitas appears on the left side in the back. She is wearing a blue shirt.

In this group: Eutemia Maura, Felicitas, Giannina Nataly, Eduardo, Ana Maria, Aniceta Lucia, Leonidas Margarita, Juana
