Santa Maria Group's story

The members of this committee help each other and they are seeking a way to improve each of their enterprises, because they help support their households with this. They are also in the poverty elimination program.

Nilsa is an enterprising person. She started little by little, and thanks to her constant hard work and her wish to get ahead, she has been able to help her family. Nilsa has a store where she provides all kinds of products to her customers. This has allowed her to become known, and she now has a regular clientele who always buy from her.

She is asking for this loan to buy products from her store, like vegetables, baked goods, fruit, and other products.

Note: Only one person appears in the photo, but this is a group loan. A group photo wasn't possible because they were avoiding the gathering of people due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
