Santa Marta Group's story

The Santa Marta Women’s Committee was formed on the 21st of August 2008 thanks to its former Director Marcia L., who herself sells dry goods. When Ms. L. contacted the counselor at a weekly meeting in her area to find out more about the Women’s Entrepreneurship program she brought together 15 women, all of whom have worked together ever since, and are now in their 5th loan cycle together.

The average credit drawn by each member is 680,000 Gs., which is used for different activities, such as the sale of food, dry goods, cakes and other pastries, lingerie, beverages, cosmetics, clothes, candy, and the cultivation and sale of pigs, etc.

All of them perform fundraising activities, help each other reach their common goals of growing their business and repaying their loans on time.

They actively participate in weekly meetings and have impeccable work solidarity.

In this group: Eulalia, Graciela, Clemencia, Griselda, Grisel, Gumercinda, Tomasa, Encarnacion, Cristina, Cristi, Cristina, Angelica, Marcia, Jorgelina, Arminda
