Virgen Del Carmen Group's story

The Virgen del Carmen group is an exemplary group - it is in its ninth cycle of the committee program. They are engaged in the survey for the elimination of poverty; three of the women have very low incomes, but this helps them to want to struggle harder to get ahead.

One person who deserves to be highlighted is Maria, who works selling vegetables. Through her job she works to support her family and also to improve her business and continue growing. She is a very determined person who wants to continue growing. She is seeking part of this loan in order to be able to invest it in the purchase of vegetables like tomatoes, onions, green peppers, potatoes and other vegetables so that she can continue with her sales.

The group is very grateful for this opportunity for growth that it is receiving.

In this group: Salustiana, Marta, Patricia, Claudia, Maria, Agueda, Perla, Ramona, Victoriana, Adelaida, Andrea, Maria, Maria, Lida, Johana*
