Virgen De Fatima Group's story

Virgen de Fátima (Virgin of Fátima) is a group working their first cycle. They got together to offer their families what they could not have, and the all help each other out to progress by organizing both individual and group activities with their jobs, all related to “macate” (traveling merchant) and handicrafts.
Domitila is a member of this group, and she is also its president. She says she has a great desire to progress in life, and that she makes efforts to provide her family with everything they need. She engages in handicrafts, and she is also a street vendor selling every kind of products, such as clothes, shoes, general items and more. She works every day, when it’s cold as well as when it’s hot, in order to keep on progressing and thus being an example for her family.
She is requesting a loan to buy shoes and clothes, in order to continue selling her products and earning the income that they need.
