El Pueblito Group's story

The committee named El Pueblito is made up of sixteen women who have set a goal of growing not only economically but also as people so they can have a better quality of living.

One of them is Susana who makes her living making and selling cakes and take-out food. She starts work early every day as this is when she prepares the products she sells later. Susana joined the group with the objective of being able to offer her loved ones better living conditions and give them all she didn't have.

She is requesting this loan to buy flour, eggs, butter, candy and other ingredients so she can continue with her work as she has been doing so she can help her family.
