San Roque Group's story

Maria B. from the Remansito de _C.D.E. started the current committee. She contacted her neighbors and friends to join the committee in her community. It is called Denomina San Roque and is in its 7th loan cycle with 18 members. The group is known in its neighborhood as being very loyal and responsible with each other. Each member has her own independent business that she works hard with to get ahead. Mrs. Juana P. is one of the committee members and she sells cosmetics. With the first loan that she received she could begin her business, and now wants to improve it since every day she has more customers. Because of this she would like to build a room to show her products. She has been selling house to house with her customers and also selling in her home. In this way she has greatly increased her business. So, each member does a different job with a lot of sacrifice, and has been able to help her family. The work of each member is listed below: 1.
