San Juan Group's story

In the Quiindy section of the neighborhood of Barrio San Lorenzo, 23 km from Carapegúa, some women of scarce resources found out about the Committee of Businesswomen program and decided to meet to receive information about the above-mentioned program.

These women are active, and they all work in independent businesses including the sale of traditional basket products, garment production, artisan work.

They are looking for a little more support through credit to boost their family incomes and improve their quality of life.

In the case of Juana Q., she works in the sale of various kinds of products from traditional baskets to noodles, bread, milk, sugar, rice and others. The loan that she requests will be invested in these products.

Her business is frequented by all the neighbors and the sale of her products is quite good. This helps her to feed her family and sustain them with the earnings from her business.

They need credit from this operation to invest in their respective work in order to achieve sustainable growth so that they can grow as a group and in their individual manners.
