San Francisco Group's story

The group named San Francisco is formed by women who are head of their households and struggle for a better quality of life for their loved ones. They are in the 12th cycle of the women's committee program and all strive to get ahead.

Zulma is part of this committee with the purpose of helping her family. She sells fruit and with her work she generates the means to offer her family all that she could not have. Despite the difficulties, she does not give up and searches to improve every day.

She requests this loan to purchase fresh fruit to sell and with that to be able to serve her customers, to keep selling to be able to grow and improve.
