San Blas Group's story

The San Blas group is in its 8th program cycle of the women's committee. All those in the group work and help one another get ahead. There are 16 women in the group with the desire to be able to grow and get ahead to help their families.

Mrs. Dolly is one of the women. She dedicates herself to selling as she has a modest shop. Every day, she begins her work early as she has many clients who always buy from her.

She notes that she joined the group with the purpose of being able to improve and grow to continue helping her family.

She is asking for this loan to be able to buy dairy products, meat, candy and other items. In this manner, she will be able to continue with the sales as she has been doing.
