A loan of $6,400 helped a member to purchase ice cream for sale.

Mba'apora Group's story

The committee "Mba'apora" was formed out of a number of neighbors in the city of Mariano Roque Alonso. They are women who are heads of household who have seen a great opportunity for them and their families, which is why they got together in order to move forward and help their families.

Emerita is a member of this group. She sells ice cream, which she has been doing for a while, and says that it is growing thanks to her work and sacrifice. Thanks to the sale of ice cream she is helping her family and gives them everything they need to live their lives without deprivation. Her dream is to be able to continue growing and invest more in her business in order to to be able to give her family the best.

She is seeking this loan to purchase ice cream in many flavors since hot weather is coming up and she wants to be well-stocked with products to sell to her customers.

In this group: Fidelina, Graciela, Eusebia, Julia, Wilma, Isabel, Sofia, Irma, Zully, Ada, Alicia, Nilsa, Sonia, Daiana, Nelly, Wilma, Claudia, Mirtha, Marta, Leonidas, Emerita, Diana*
