Lideres De Villa Rica Group's story

María is a member of the group “Líderes de Villa Rica” (Leaders of Villa Rica), which consists of 12 responsible members who have been working together for more than a year. They desire to have their own businesses so that they can cover their household expenses.

María decided to open a snack business in which she sells chicken wings, “salchipapas” (sausages and potatoes), and hamburgers. She operates her business every afternoon outside of her home. María is requesting a loan in order to buy supplies such as oil, chicken, bread, potatoes, and cutlery. Her greatest wish is to continue working in a positive manner. María is 46 years old, separated from her spouse, and has five independent children.

The group “Líderes de Villa Rica” appreciates everyone who made this loan possible. In the photo, María is standing on the back row, second from the right wearing an orange turtleneck and a brown jacket.
