San Luis Group's story

Selling glass, replacements, food, weaving fabric and toasting beans are the businesses that the members of the San Luís group - part of Centro Focal Collpani- are dedicated to. Martha Q., who is 29 years old, a wife and mother of a girl, wakes up very early to do the chores in her home to later do her work toasting beans. She buys beans, the largest ones, covers them in baking soda, to later toast them and then finally bag them. When she has enough bean packages, on the weekends she delivers to several shops and stores; this is a product that is purchased by many school children. This time she needs the loan to purchase larger quantities of beans and to keep operating her business. The rest of the members of the group also need the loan to invest in their businesses, purchasing merchandise. Their president is Alicia C..
