Virgen De Fatima Group's story

The "Virgen de Fatima" group is in its fifth cycle. None of its 12 members are living below the poverty line, but they are within the second and third levels of the "Semáforo" poverty elimination program.

One of the group members is Jorgelina, who was within the third level of poverty in her last survey. She says that with much effort, she is moving forward and everything she has is the fruit of her work and sacrifice. She has a well-stocked store in her house, where she supplies her neighbors and people from other places with many types of products. Jorgelina's dream is to continue growing and to have a larger store in the future.

She is applying for this loan to buy vegetables, meat, legumes, and bulk products, among others. With this help, she will continue working and helping her family as she has been doing.

In this group: Gabriela, Amelia, Verinica, Elsa, Margarita, Cristina, Jorgelina, Juana, Francisca, Noelia, Celina, Silvia*
