En Busca Del Progreso Group's story

Ivette is 22 years old and is single. She is part of the "En Busca del Progreso (In Search of Progress)" group. The group is made up of seven members who chose the name because they are all seeking to succeed in their businesses by supporting one another. For the past three years, Ivette has worked making and selling fast-food such as fried chicken, sandwiches, hotdogs and french fries, drinks, etc. She runs this business in her home from a food cart that is designed to prepare foods. Through this business, she is able to cover her expenses and save to study for a professional career in the future.

The loan that she receives will be used to purchase supplies to prepare food such as potatoes, chickens, disposable containers to serve food, and plastic bags.

In this group: Valdelomar, Jose Alejandro, Almagro, Ivette, Liz Yeny, Segundo, Sigma
