Santa Lucia Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to refinance debt and to purchase drinks, baked goods, vegetables and other products.

Santa Lucia Group's story

The group called Santa Lucia is formed by members seeking the opportunity to grow as well as looking for a way to be able to offer better life conditions to their families so that they never have to experience any periods when they have needs unmet.

One of the members is Perla, who earns a living in retail. She has a shop in her home and remarks that through her sales she helps support her home and family. She is an enterprising person who is looking for a way to get ahead especially after the problems she has faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic which prevented her from working normally, and the consequences this has had on her business, but she is looking for a way to get ahead again.

She asks for this loan so that she can refinance her debt and also to be able to inject capital into her business and stock up on drinks, baked goods, vegetables, and other products.

Observation: Only one person appears in this photo, but this loan is for a group. The group photo was not possible due to efforts to avoid crowding people together because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
