Las Mercedes Group's story

The group called Las Mercedes is an active group. It is made up of 21 women. They hold solidarity, cooperation, communication and responsibility as fundamental pillars.

One of the members of this committee is Mrs. Irma, who has a selling pantry in her house. She says that her business is modest and has been improving little by little.

Despite difficulties, she does not allow herself to be defeated and fights for a better quality of life. She mentions that her work was affected by the covid19 pandemic. Since she could not work normally, this affected her business, but she fights to keep improving and growing.

She requests this loan to purchase products to stock her pantry with drinks, baked goods, vegetables, canned goods and other products.

Note: Only one person appears in the photo, but this loan is for a group. The group photo was not possible to avoid the gathering of people due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
