Las Emprendedoras Group's story

The group named Las Emprendedoras is in its eleventh cycle where, according to the survey for the elimination of poverty, two of the members are below the poverty line.

One of the members, Viviana, in her last survey showed a poverty level within the first level. She comments that she is struggling and putting all of herself into being able to improve her income and therefore continue helping her family. She wants to continue working since she knows that this is the only way to be able to come out ahead. She sells fruit and is requesting this loan to be able to invest it in the purchase of fruits of the season, like apples, oranges, pears, plums, etc., which will help her to fix her business plan and to improve her income.

In this group: Ramona, Silvia, Catalina, Mercedes, Lucila, Clotilde, Viviana, Karen, Clotilde, Magdalena, Catalina, Patricia, Maria, Blasida, Bonifacia*, Emilce*, Ninfa*
