Santa Barbara Group's story

This committee is called Santa Barbara. The group is in its third cycle. They have 17 members, all eager to move forward and grow their businesses in order to improve their families’ living conditions.

One of the members, who is characterized as being very enterprising, is Anastacia. She has a diner where she offers a good variety of menus to her customers. She is very good at what she does, and that is why she has an established clientele who really likes the meals that she makes. She joined the group with the goal of receiving training in order to be able to improve her business venture.

She is requesting this loan to purchase meat, bread, vegetables, condiments, greens, and other products. She is grateful for the opportunity she is receiving to be able to continue with her sales as she has been doing.
