San Cayetano 1 Group's story

The group San Cayetano 1, in the city of Coronel Oviedo, is made up of 21 very hardworking women who fight for their families. They are part of the Poverty Elimination Survey that looks at the overall situation of each one of the members. Catalina is part of this group of fighters. In her last poverty elimination survey she was a level one - that is to say, with a very low level of income. She has a great desire to grow, which shows in her enthusiasm. She sells milk, starting work very early in the day so that she can get her product on her customers' tables for breakfast. She asks for a loan to buy more milk so that she can continue her sales. She is grateful for the opportunity that she has been given since it will help her to invest in her small business and have more income.

In this group: Felicia, Francisca, Alicia, Ramona, Marta, Benjamina, María, Gladys, Cirila, Victoria, Teresa, Mariela, Modesta, Rosana, Catalina, Naida, Graciela, Angélica, Fulvia, Angelina, Pablina*
