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

A loan helped to buy plants, soil amendments, and fertilizer, among other products, to sell.

San Rafael Group's story

The San Rafael Group was formed because the good experiences of neighboring groups motivated the members to form their committee. The group has 13 members, who all have high hopes to improve their quality of life and that of their families.

Among them, is Katerin Paola, who sells plants and other related products. She says that she now has a customer base that always buys from her, and that through her business, she helps support her household and her family so that they always have what they need.

She wants to invest in her business in order to improve it and stock up so she can offer her customers a wider variety of products.

She is requesting this loan in order to buy plants, soil amendments, and fertilizers, among other products, to sell.

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