Pororo Group's story

The Pororo group are taking part in their first loan cycle within the Women's Committee Program. They all work and help each other out in order to make progress. Each member completed the poverty stoplight survey which helps women to determine what their financial situation is. Thirteen of the women live below the poverty line but they still work hard to get ahead.

One of the members of this group is Edelma who was shown by the survey to be at an intermediate level. As a result, she is able to help her family. She has a grocery store in her home and also sells 'chipa' (cheese buns). She is managing to grow her business thanks to her hard work and her desire to get ahead in life. Edelma would like to continue working and improving her income so that she can continue helping her family. She is requesting this loan so that she can stock her business with drinks, food products, canned goods, milk, bread and other products. This will allow her to continue providing her customers with everything they need.

In this group: Elvira, Eusebia, Gladys, María, Juana, María, Edelma, Porfiria, Liliana, Veronica, Leonarda, Ricarda, Claudia
