A loan of $2,500 helped a member to purchase micro-franchises to sell eyeglasses.


Virgen De Fatima Group's story

This group is in their third loan cycle. The women in the group are female heads of household who joined in order to give their families a better future than what they had.

One of the members is Ramona, who works selling Vision Spring eyeglasses, which forms part of the micro-franchises offered by the foundation as a model of business ideas. With this work and the trainings she has received, she is moving forward and fighting to succeed.

Ramona is requesting this loan to purchase micro-franchises to sell eyeglasses, which will help her improve her level of poverty by generating more income and continuing to work.

In this group: Celia, Ramona, Rosa, Lucia, Leticia, Karina, Venancia, Bernardina, Silvia, Pablina, Rosa, Julia, Fatima, Florentina, Zunilda, Lisa, Nylsen*, Elisa*
