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

A loan helped to purchase vegetables, meats, baked goods, tinned foods, and other products to sell.

San Rafael Sur Group's story

San Rafael Sur is a group composed of 10 women; they are in the first loan cycle of the women's committee program. Some of them work in production and some in commerce. They help each other and look for ways to achieve their goals together.

One of these is Tomasa, who has a grocery store in her home. She says that despite everyday difficulties she looks for ways to continue improving and thus offer the best to her loved ones. Tomasa defines herself as a tenacious person who does not allow herself to be defeated and always looks for ways to achieve.

She is requesting this loan to purchase a variety of products to sell, like vegetables, meats, baked goods, tinned foods, and other products.
