Virgen Del Perpetuo Socorro Group's story

Virgen del Perpetuo Socorro Committee is the name of a group founded on November 18th 2009. There were 15 women in the beginning and currently there are 13 women who are working with the Programa de Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras (Women Entrepreneurs Program) and are in their 8th loan cycle. This group was formed thanks to the current Director of Finance, Marica, who brought together all her neighbors and friends who wanted to work. Marcia says that she works in sales as she has a grocery store in her house and this business gives her the income that she needs to be able to help her family. She says that she already has good customers and that the business is improving thanks to her efforts. She is requesting this loan to buy rice, sugar, noodles, dairy products, baked goods, yerba, etc. With these things she will be able to supply her store and keep working.

In this group: Josefa, Marcia, Nancy, Liz, Norma, Maria, Maria, Benicia, Prudencia, Myrian, Virginia, Nilsa, Nancy
