Santa Ana Group's story

Rosario is the group leader; she has sold clothing, footwear and other accessories on order for several years. Although sometimes her profits are not very large she must still try to contribute to her household's expenses because otherwise they would not have enough to survive. Daysi is a long-standing member of the group who always sees to making punctual repayments. For the past 5 years she has sold prepared meals during the day and fast-food, like salchipapas (French fries with fried hot dog sausages) and hamburgers, at night. Her earnings help her spouse meet part of the family's living expenses. Wilmer is the only male in the group. He has been a taxi driver for 6 years. He has a lot of experience in this line of work but sometimes has few customers so he often has to work until very late at night to earn enough to support his family. One thing in his favor is that he owns his car so he can go out to work anytime. The funds requested will be used to capitalize their various work activities to take advantage of the festive times that are near for they hope to have better profits than in other months.

In this group: Amanda, Roberta, Mirtha Yesenia, Rosario Pilar, Isolina, Deisy Maricielo, Cecilia, Rosa Magaly, Miriam Floribel, Wilmer Elmer
