San Miguel Group's story

The group named San Miguel was formed in the zone of Concepción, which is a rather dangerous area, that is to say a zone noticeable for the social conflict they experience due to the presence of dangerous groups. They say that they struggle to be able to offer their families better living conditions.

Maria is one of the members. She works making and selling food. She prepares it herself every day from early in the morning and then she sells it. She says that she has an established customer base thanks to the good quality of her products. It is with this work that she helps her family and seeks to give them a decent quality of life without hardships like she had to experience.

She asks for this loan to purchase a variety of supplies to be able to make her food, such as vegetables, meat, baked goods, greens, and more. She is grateful for the opportunity she is receiving to be able to continue with her work and, with this, to help her family.

In this group: Elva, Rumilda, Selva, Gloria, Maria, Leónidas, Hilda, Jennifer, Graciela, Felipa, Maria, Salvadora, Andresa, Gladys, Noelia, Estela, Adriana, Leidi, Escolástica, Marisa, Fátima
