San Antonio Group's story

18 women make up the group with the goal of being able to train themselves and offer better living conditions to each one of their families. They know that through working together they will be able to reach their goals and get ahead. They are from the city of Concepción, a zone that is sensitive to the presence of armed groups, where everyone fights to get ahead despite all of this.

One of them is Norma, who works in sales. She has a small bakery where she works every day from early in the morning, and she says that the work allows her to be able to help her husband to raise their 5 children. They are a selfless family who, with effort and working together with her husband, have been able to get ahead. She mentions that she decided to be part of the group since she saw that it was an opportunity to grow and get ahead.

She asks for this loan for buying primary materials for making her products, such as flour in bags, butter, salt, and other products.
