Medalla Milagrosa Group's story

The communal bank group, Medalla Milagrosa, is made up of women from the city of Este. They are in their 13th cycle as a committee of women, in which they all work and help one another to get ahead. They want to give to their children what they were not able to have, which is what motivates them to work day after day.

Irma, one of the group members, sells a variety of types of drinks. She mentioned that her sales are going very well, especially on the weekends when they are more people. She said that her personal goal is to have a large store front someday soon. Irma has requested this loan to buy sodas, juices, beer, wine and other beverages, so that her business will be well stocked and she will be able to continue offering a good variety to her customers.
