San Luis Group's story

This committee is called San Luis and the members are within the poverty elimination program. They set a goal to grow, not only economically, but also as people so that their families lack for nothing.

One of the members is Maria, who has a small grocery store. She started with a modest business and today she is already known in the area. With her work she obtains the resources to support her loved ones. Maria joined the committee to be able to get training and through this be able to improve and continue with her work, since she is who provides the support to her home.

She asks for this loan to purchase bread, meat, vegetables, dairy, canned good and other products. She is grateful for the opportunity she receives to able to invest in her venture and continue helping her family.
