Po San Jose Group's story

The community association PO SAN JOSE is beginning its first (financing) cycle in Pro Mujer as part of PERLA DEL ORIENTE Agency. It is comprised of 9 individuals and run by a board of directors led by Ms. GLENAR, president of the community association.
The loan they were granted will benefit small businesses, among them Ms. Glenar's. Currently she has a food store. She started off with a co-owner but is now independent.
The credit will be used to purchase stock, mainly rice, meat, potatoes, and vegetables. She can buy cheaper in bulk.
Ms. Glenar's work generates income for her family and provides them with a better quality of life. She is a single mother with 2 children. She told us she lost her husband some years ago and is now mother and father for her children. She works twice as hard so they won't want for anything. She has become her family's backbone.
