Virgen De Fátima Group's story

The Virgen de Fátima committee was started up in the city of Carapeguá and currently is on their ninth loan cycle with twenty members. They are hard-working women who go to a lot of trouble to progress and work to get ahead.

Most of the women are embroiderers, and through their work they bring in the income they need to grow. They want their children to become good people and useful to others.

Silvia is one of the members, and she's seeking a loan to buy thread, needles, frames, and all the other supplies to be able to continue embroidering so she can earn her living.

In this group: Avelina, Silvia, Martina, Sulma, Leli, Mirian, Cornelia, Faustina, Estela, Demetria, Yesica, Mariana, Toribia, Bartola, Elba, Lida, Nidia, Sandra, Margarita*, Eustaciana*
