San Ignacion Group's story

Delia L. started the group. She lives in the neighborhood Km 10 Acaray of C.D.E. She contacted her neighbors and friends in her community to form the group.

The group is called San Ignacio. They are in their sixth cycle, and there are 17 members. In the neighborhood the group stands out for being very united, supportive, and responsible. Each one received their loan, and they invested it independently in their own business. They are all sacrificing mothers who fight to provide all of their families’ necessities.

Esabel E. sells clothes, and her husband is a bricklayer. They have four children. They both start work at a very early hour in the morning. Isabel travels to different areas to go door to door to sell her products. She says that the work is arduous, but she needs to do it for her family. Sometimes the income she gets really helps.

I am grateful to the Foundation for the help they have given me. With the loan I was able to get new articles of clothing and more new customers.
