San Jose Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy flour, butter, eggs, food coloring, creams, and other products.

San Jose Group's story

The "San Jose" group is in its first cycle in the women's committee program. It is a new group, and each member has set a goal to grow, not only economically, but personally. They are in the program to eliminate poverty, seeking a way to overcome their economic situation and provide the best to their families.

Laura is a member of this group, and she has a bakery. She has a customer base that always places orders due to the good quality of her products. She began with very little but has grown and improved thanks to her work every day.

She asks for a loan in order to buy supplies to make her products, such as flour, butter, eggs, food coloring, creams, and other products. She is happy for the opportunity she receives, as it will be a great help in order to be able to continue helping her family through her work.
