Virgen De Fatima Group's story

The "Virgen D. Fatima" entrepreneurial bank is in its third cycle, and consists of 16 people. The group includes women who sell cosmetics, food, groceries, clothing and jams. These activities require quick credit. The group meetings take place on Thursdays at 3:30 PM in the home of the treasurer, Ruth Negri Rodriguez. The partners are committed to working with Emprender; they have learned to save and they have a lot of responsibility, which they share with each other.

Delicia V. M. is the president of the group, and has been for three cycles. Delicia was born June 11, 1973 in Beni. She works selling cosmetics, as well as fabric wallets, handbags, purses, etc. She is very responsible and accomplished in the group. She is also one of the leaders of the group and ensures that everyone makes their payments. Delicia helps sustain her family with her income--she has two small children in primary school.
