Sagrado Corazon De Jesus Group's story

The group "Sagrado Corazon de Jesus" is in their first cycle as part of the Women's Committee program. They are participating in the Poverty Elimination program. Of the 11 women, over 60% have already surpassed the poverty line, and those that are in the red, or level one, are working with trainings and incentives to start a new business or grow their business.

Cristina is one of these women, who wants to get in the sales business and open a small dispensary with the most essential products, and to grow it little by little. She is hopeful that with this she will be able to help her family and improve her finances.

She asks for this loan to be able to invest in the purchase of vegetables, meat, bread, noodles, rice, yerba and more, so that she can start this challenge ahead of her.

In this group: Johana, Basilisa, Cynthia, Victoriana, Rosalinda, Maria, Celedonia, Graciela, Lidia, Maura, Cristina
