A loan of $2,000 helped a member to buy charcoal to sell.


Maria Auxiliadora Group's story

The group Maria Auxiliadora is in their first cycle with the Women's Committee program. They are learning to work together, attending the trainings and giving all of themselves. They are part of the poverty elimination survey, assessing the situation of each individual.

Venancia is one of the women who, through her work and sacrifice, is growing and getting ahead and generating income to help her family. She sells charcoal, a business that is growing little by little, and she now has good customers.

She asks for this loan to invest in the purchase of charcoal to sell, since she wants to have a large enough quantity of her product on hand to offer to her customers.

In this group: Eusebia, Lorenza, Marcia, Rafaela, Ermelinda, Victoriana, Zulma, Juana, Mercedes, Katerim, Sara, Fatima, Luciana, Leonarda, Trifina, Venancia
