Virgen Del Carmen Group's story

The women's committee, "Virgen del Carmen" has fifteen members. These women are very united, responsible, and supportive. They say that they have many desires of working and getting ahead, both with the group and with their families. Estefana is part of this very enthusiastic group, and she says that she works hard to be able to help her family. She has a business selling chickens, which is going well. She is a good saleswoman and always offers good quality to her customers. She started very timidly, but later she opened up a path for herself, and today she has a large clientele that places a lot of orders with her. She is requesting this loan to invest in the purchase of chickens, which she will sell to keep earning income to help her family.

In this group: Claudia, Juana De La Cruz, Teodolina, Selva, Luciana, Aubreliana, Estefana, Ignacia, Basilia, Ana Noelia, Juana Gabriela, Cristina, Mirian Encarnacion, Arminda*, Clara Dianey*
