Fortaleza Group's story

La Fortaleza is a group that has just formed. The members are getting together as a great opportunity to progress in the program of committee of women. They want to train and improve, not only financially, but also as people.

One of the members is Fidelina, president of the group, who by selling food has the means to provide for her family. This is her main source of income. She gets up at an early hour every morning in order to prepare the food. She already has good customers and she wants to continue growing.

She is asking for this loan in order to be able to invest in the purchase of meat, vegetables, seasonings, eggs, flour and more, as these are the principal ingredients that she needs the most. She is grateful for this opportunity that she and her companions will not miss out on.

In this group: Fidelina, Rosalina, Cristina, Gabriela, Ramona, Maria, Sonia, Zunilda, Maria, Ignacia, Marta, Elizabeth*, Luciana*
