A loan helped a member to buy vegetables, bakery items, dairy products, fruits, and other items for her store.


San Rafael Group's story

This group, called San Rafael, is in its second cycle and has 19 members. It is quite a unified group, made up of very dedicated and responsible women.

One of the members is Mabel who works in sales. She says that with her work she has been able to move forward. She has a modest grocery store in her house. With a great deal of sacrifice she was able to start off, and now has a well-established business. She adds that she now has a steady clientele. She is grateful for the opportunity of being able to join the group, which has allowed her to give the best to her family.

Mabel seeks this loan to buy products for her store, such as vegetables, bakery items, dairy products, fruits, and other items. This will allow her to continue with her sales.

In this group: Liz, María, Mabel, Rosa, María, Ceveriana, Lorenza, Marina, Efigenia, María, María, Gabriela, Pablina, Norma, Viviana, Laura, Alva, Elena, Natalia
