Virgen Poderosa Group's story

The Virgen Poderosa group is in its fifth cycle of the committee program, in which all the members work and help one another to move forwards. They make a living in various activities. They are participating in the poverty elimination survey, and it turns out that six of them are living under the poverty line, which means that they lack basic resources in certain areas, which needs to be improved.

One of the members is Flora, who makes a living selling homemade food. The business is doing very well, because her food is delicious and is in high demand by her customers. She is a very hardworking woman who, with a great deal of effort, is moving forwards. Today, she is requesting a loan to invest in buying meat, condiments, vegetables and other ingredients to continue making the food she sells.

In this group: Erica, Viviana, Flora, Cornelia, Florenciana, Rossana, Ananies, Juana, Francisca, Gloria, Sebastiana, Irma*, Maria*
