Virgen Del Carmen Group's story

The group "Virgen del Carmen" has been working together for eleven cycles. They are women heads of the family who are fighting to give their families everything that they could not have. They form part of the program of poverty elimination, and they want to improve their life and income.

One of the members is Ylda, who in her survey showed a poverty level inside level one, which is to say with low income, and she should continue putting forth effort. Through her effort and continuous work, and through the sale of empanadas she is trying to move forward.

She is asking for this loan in order to be able to buy a freezer to save her meat products and vegetables that she uses to make empanadas, since the climate is very hot and she wants to keep them fresh. She is happy for the opportunity that she is receiving to continue growing.

In this group: Carmen, Mirna, Nancy, Fermina, Ylda, Antonia, Liliana, Serafina, Luz, Aida, Lourdelina, Deseis, Gloria, Cinthia, Eladia, Nilsa*, Ruth*
