The group “Mujeres para el desarrollo” (Women for Development) is in its third loan cycle of the program of the women’s committee, where all these women work and help each other to move forward. They are doing a poll of poverty elimination where 4 members find themselves below the poverty line.
One of the members is Francisca, who works selling diverse vegetables. She comments that she always tries to have good quality products to offer her customers. She is a hardworking person who does not let herself be defeated by adversities, and who works hard for her family despite the difficulties. She is grateful for this given opportunity that will be very helpful to her.
She is requesting this loan to buy fresh vegetables for sale, such as tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, eggplants and other products, in order to continue with her sales as she has been doing so far.
