Jesus Misericordioso Group's story

The Jesús Misericordioso Group is comprised of 12 female members who are engaged in various activities, from the sale of cleaning products to working as a homemaker. All of the members of the group are working women who are aware of their needs and who therefore engage in various ventures in order to improve their quality of life and that of their families.

One member of the gorup, Juana, has long worked selling fruits and vegetables. She gets up early and goes to the market to purchase wholesale fruits and vegetables to later sell the highest quality items at the best price to select customers. The loan sought will be used to buy seasonal fruits such as apples, bananas, strawberries, oranges, pears, etc.; as well as vegetables such as lettuce, tomatoes, watercress, carrots, etc. The amount received will be reinvested in her business and the extra revenue will go to improving her quality of life.

In this group: Veronica, Marcela, Lucia, Liliana, Deolinda, Zonia, Petrona, Pabla, Juana, Nadia, Daniela, Delia
