A loan of $2,325 helped a member to buy vegetables for her store.


Virgen Del Rosario Group's story

The communal bank "Virgen del Rosario" is in its seventh loan cycle in the women's program. They have taken the poverty elimination survey and most of the members have passed the 50 indicators on the survey and are trying to get ahead.

One of the members is Lucila and her survey results showed she is at level 3 on the poverty line. She has been able to improve her economy significantly thanks to the support of the foundation. Through her effort and continuous work, and by applying techniques for being a successful woman, she is improving her poverty situation. She is also aware that the work and effort she is putting in now must continue and be permanent in order to be totally successful, in an effort to improve her family's lifestyle.

She is requesting a loan to buy vegetables for her store so she can increase sales. This will benefit her business and help improve her income.

In this group: Lucila, Estefna, Natalia, Pera, Valentina, Elda, Maria, Nora, Odila, Mirta*
