Virgen Del Carmen Group's story

The communal bank 'Virgen del Carmen' is in their second cycle of the women's committee program and they are participating in the poverty elimination survey which aims to find out how each one of them is doing in their daily lives.

One noteworthy member is Luciana, a hardworking lady who is a housekeeper and also has a business selling foods of various kinds. She is a fighter and puts in all her effort for her family to give them everything they need and ensure they do not have to go through the difficulties that she had to endure.

Luciana has applied for this loan to purchase meat, vegetables, condiments and other supplies in order to continue selling groceries, and so that she can continue to strive for a better future.

In this group: Claudia, Luciana, Selva, Aubreliana, Juana, Juana, Clara, Teodolina, Eulalia, Ignacia, Basilia, Arminda, Lucina*
