Emprendedoras De San Ramon Group's story

The Emprendedoras San Ramón group is in its first loan cycle with the Committee of Women program based in the town of San Pedro. The women are from difficult-to-access areas where many of them do not have certain indispensable basic services.

Sra. Valentina is a member of the group. She has a small cafe which is open every day where she attends her customers. She is a very enterprising woman who is seeking to improve the cafe so she can provide a better service to her customers.

Valentina is asking for a loan to buy an electric oven so she can continue selling the food she cooks.

In this group: Elva, Nilsa, Ninfa, Marciana, Jenniffer, Daissy, Cristina, Diana, Laura, Aurelia, Petronila, Synthia, Rosa, Lidia, Valentina
