Sagrado Corazon Group's story

The Sagrado Corazon group is in its third cycle of the women's committee program, in which all of the members work and help each other to succeed. They are doing the poverty elimination survey, which helps them to learn about each woman's situation.

One of the members is Teofila, whose last survey showed that she is at an average level of poverty. She works hard to improve her life and her financial status. Teofila makes a living selling all types of food, and she says that it is going very well because the meals she makes are delicious and she always has many orders.

She has applied for this loan to buy ingredients to continue making food, such as vegetables, meat, chicken, condiments, and other items to continue working.

In this group: Claudia, Gladys, Agustina, Nancy, Carmen, Teofila, Lorena, Ignacia, Nancy, Emilia, Juana, Diana, Victoria, Blacia, Nancy*
