Rosa Mistica Group's story

This is Rosa Mistica group's first year together and is made up of a committee of women who all work and support one another to succeed. They are taking part in a survey about eliminating poverty, and three of the members live below the poverty line.

Maria is one of the members, who, in her latest survey, had a level one poverty rating, meaning that her income is very low and are below the poverty line. However, she knows that through her hard work she can continue to grow. She makes a living selling cleaning products through micro-franchises offered by the foundation.

Maria is requesting this loan to buy a cleaning micro-franchise, which will enable her to keep working and making cleaning products, which she then sells. She is grateful for the opportunity that all the members are receiving as it will help them and their families a great deal.

In this group: Ylcia, Maria, Cynthia, Basilisa, Nancy, Pascuala, Monica, Ardini, Yamila, Vanessa, Mirian
