Virgen De Fatima Group's story

The group called Virgen de Fatima is in its 6th cycle with the program for groups of women. They are participating in the study for the elimination of poverty. Three of the members are below the poverty line, which is to say that they have a very low income.

One of the members is Maria, who makes a living in sales. She has a small grocery store where she works every day from the early morning hours. She says that thanks to her efforts her business has been growing slowly and she wants to continue working on it. She is requesting this assistance in order to continue working and to buy supplies to stock her business, such as vegetables, foods, fruit, drinks and other products. In this way she can carry out her business plan.

In this group: Feliciana, Maria, Cristina, Porfiria, Irene, Maria, Maria, Ermelinda, Paulina, Angela, Carmen, Sonia, Maria*
