Santa Marcia Group's story

The "Santa Marcia" committee is made up of hard-working women who seek a way to be able to help their families. They focused as a goal on being able to grow, not only economically, but also as people. They are in the program for the elimination of poverty, seeking to get ahead.

Emilia is one of the members of the group. She is a dressmaker, and she comments that she has an established customer base that always places many orders with her. She is a very sacrificing person who, in spite of daily difficulties, strives to get ahead and give the best to her family.

She is requesting this loan in order to buy fabrics, thread, elastics, buttons, and other additional products and in this way be able to satisfy her customers and continue with her business.
