A loan of $6,000 helped a member to buy threads and fabrics.

Medalla Milagrosa Group's story

The group Medalla Milagrosa [Miraculous Medallion] is in its 9th cycle. They took part in a “poverty elimination” survey, and none of the members was found to live below the poverty line, thanks to their effort. They have come this far thanks to the work they have done.

Mrs. Rosa is a tailor and has a tailoring workshop. She is requesting a loan to buy threads and fabrics in order to offer better prices to her customers. In the last survey she took, she was found to be above the poverty line, but she feels anyhow enthusiastic investing the money from the loan she received through the group.

Rosa appreciates this opportunity because it will be useful, not only for her, but also for her family.

In this group: Ramona, Ignacia, María, Elvira, Santa, Marisa, Rosa, Marisol, Liliana, Nilsa, Vicenta, Alicia, María, María, Angela, Marta, Daniela*
