Resedá Group's story

The Resedá group is in its 7th cycle of the women's committee programme, in which they all work and help each other to get on in life. They are doing the poverty elimination survey, in which 2 of them need additional training in order to make improvements to their life. One of the members is Estefana who works in domestic service and now wants to set up in business selling fruit and vegetables. She is a hard-working person with a lot of drive, and by putting in a lot of effort she wants to make improvements to her life. The work of the advisors must also be highlighted, as they constantly monitor training and follow-up. Estefana is asking for this loan to buy fruit and vegetables, which will help her to set up her business plan, which in turn will help her to improve her income.
