Rio Ypane Belen Group's story

The RIO YPANE BELEN group is in its second cycle in the Women’s Committee Program. The group is from the city of Concepción, which is an area a little ways from the central zone, and it is still an area of growth. It is a difficult area to access. Therefore, the members of this group want to keep struggling to grow. They want to give the area where they live a better atmosphere and to keep growing slowly.

Francisca is one of the members. She is from a small neighborhood in the district where the city of Concepción is. That is where she has her small business, a snack shop. She works there every day starting in the very early hours of the morning. She wishes that as time passes, and with help from all of the people from her area, they will be improving their environment. This way they will give better security to their families and they will also be able to give them a better future.

She is requesting this loan to buy supplies for her snack shop. She will buy things like drinks, candy, baked goods, and the rest. This way she will be able to continue growing with her business. This way she will give her family what they need to have a life without deprivations.

In this group: Francisca, Juaquina, Liz, Hermogena, Venancia, Saba, Ruth, Luz, Gladys, Isabel, Rosalina, Maria, Maria
