San Cayetano Group's story

San Cayetano is an active group made up of 21 women who uphold the fundamental pillars of solidarity, cooperation, communication, and responsibility.

One of the members of this bank is Nimia, who sells a variety of dishes. She's very hardworking. She's grateful to be part of the group, with which she can work and improve so she can help her family with her job. She also said that her sales were affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has also affected her income.

She's requesting this loan so she can invest in a purchase of a variety of products to continue making her dishes: vegetables, baked goods, greens, meat, and other products to continue with her sales.

She's grateful for this opportunity, which will enable her to continue working, as she has been doing.
