Espiritu Santo Group's story

The group Espíritu Santo is in its 27th cycle of a women's committee programme, where everyone works together and helps one another to get ahead and find ways to improve and move forwards.
One of the members is Anastacia. Through hard work and continued effort working at her general store she supports her family. She is a dedicated person who, despite daily struggles, does not let herself give in and looks for ways to improve. She adds that the Covid-19 pandemic has affected her business as she could not work in the same way as before and her income was therefore affected. She is looking for new ways to improve her business so that it picks back up in order to support her family, as she is the main provider for her household.
She is asking for this loan to inject capital into her business and to be able to stock it with drinks, baked goods, fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy and other products.
She is grateful for the opportunity to continue working with the group who will be of much assistance.
Note: there is only one person in the photo however this is a group loan. It was not possible to take a group photo due to the need to avoid a gathering of people given the Covid-19 pandemic.
