but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

La Familia Group's story

The group known as "La Familia" is in its cycle no. 7 of the women's committee program, where all are mothers of the family who are fighting for their loved ones, in order to be able to give them a better future and a better quality of life.

All are women entrepreneurs and in search of a way to be able to grow and get ahead. Among them, Mercedes stands out for her drive to rise up and desire to get ahead. She's a very active person who works tirelessly in her snack bar, and says that it's going very well and that this work enables her to help her family. She also says that, due to the covid-19 pandemic, her business has been affected, as she wasn't able to work normally, which in turn affected her income, but she's looking for a way to be able to invest in her business in order to be able to elevate it again, and in this way, to be able to offer her clients quality, variety, and all they're looking for, once again.

She's requesting this loan in order to inject a little capital in her business and buy groceries, drinks, sweets, and other products in order to be able to continue working and earning her daily sustenance.

Note: In the photo, only one person appears, but this is a group loan. It wasn't possible to take a group photo due to the necessity to avoid a gathering of people, because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
