Virgen Del Rosario Group's story

“Virgen del Rosario” is a working group from Ciudad del Este. This is its sixth loan cycle with the committee program. The members have taken a poverty elimination survey and the results indicated that three of these women are below the poverty line and have very scant incomes.

One of the members is Sra. Jorgelina. By selling shoes, she has been able to make improvements in her life. All of this has been possible because she always offers good products and her customers like her. Jorgelina is pleased to be part of this group of women. As a result of her work, she has been able to help her family.

Jorgelina is requesting a loan so that she can invest in the purchase of shoes of all types, such as sports shoes, boots, slippers, sandals, and other items. This will help her to always provide a good variety to her customers.

In this group: Alicia, Eliza, Rumilda, Rosa, Gloria, Victoria, Venincia, Sonia, Mirtha, Bernarda, Elizabeth, Lucia, Jorgelina*
