Virgen De Caacupe Group's story

The group Virgencita de Caacupe is in its fifth cycle and are surveying how to eliminate poverty, which allows them to measure each other's incomes. Thanks to this they know that five of these women has a very low income, and this permits them to understand their situation and make an even bigger effort.

One of the members is Primitiva, who sells food. It's important to emphasize that this is going very well for her because she is very good with food and gets better every time. She is a hard worker and everything she does is for her family and her loved ones.

She is asking for this loan to buy ingredients to make her food, such as meat, vegetables, etc, all which will help her to make a more concrete plan for her business, which will help her improve her earnings.

In this group: Myrian, Ana, Emilia, Maria, Norma, Elena, Laura, Graciela, Sonia, Angela, Sonia, Primitiva, Lorena, Magdalena, Mirta, Ramona, Liz
