Santa Rosa Group's story

The Santa Rosa group is in its nineteenth cycle of the women's committee program, where everyone has pledged to work and help each other to get ahead. They are doing a poverty elimination survey to understand the life situation of each one of them and thus be able to work to improve their quality of life.

One of the members, Lidia, works in sales. She has a grocery store at her house. She mentions that this venture has enabled her to provide her family a higher quality of life so they do not have to do without any kind of necessities as she did. Lidia is grateful for the opportunity to join the group because she will be able to invest in her business which allows her to help her loved ones.

Lidia is asking for this loan in order to purchase a variety of items to stock her grocery store with baked goods, vegetables, fruits, canned goods and other items so that she can continue selling.

Please note: Only one person appears in the photo but this is a group loan. It was not possible to take a group photo because of the need to avoid crowds of people due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
