San Antonio Group's story

This is a new group, where everyone struggles to better themselves and offer better living conditions to their families. They are in the poverty elimination program, where they all look for ways to help their loved ones.

Cynthia is one of the members. She sells ice cream and says that her business is modest, but in this way, she seeks to move ahead. She is a hardworking person who does not fear challenges, which is why she works tirelessly to give her family a better future.

She requests this loan to be able to buy ice cream of various flavors and therefore be able to continue with her sales and fulfill her customers' desires.
