Santo Tomas Group's story

The group called Santo Tomas is in its sixth cycle in the program of the women's committee. The members are female heads of household who seek the means to be able to get their families ahead and to give them better living conditions than they had.

Señora Lilia is the president of the group. She works in brickmaking. She notes that she herself produces the bricks that she then sells to her usual clients. She is a very self-sacrificing person who, despite difficulties, day by day seeks the means to be able continue helping her family.

She requests this loan to be able to buy clay in quantity and firewood, and in this way to be able to continue with her production as she has been doing.
