Paso Puente Group's story

The group called "Paso Puente" is in its third cycle in the program of the women's committee. The 23 members of the group make great efforts to be able to get ahead with their families. Each one has her own business, through which she helps her loved ones, to give them a better quality of life.

One of the members is Araceli who helps to provide for her family through the sale of food that she makes. She says that she has an established clientele thanks to the good quality of everything she makes. She is a hard-working, self-sacrificing, and enterprising person who seeks the means to be able to get ahead.

She requests this loan to be able to buy seasonings, baked goods, vegetables, meat, eggs, and other items. Note: The children appearing on the photo are children of the borrowers who applied for this group loan.
