Santa Catalina Group's story

The group named “Santa Catalina” is in its fourth loan cycle with the Women’s Committee Program. They have set a goal to grow, not only financially, but also as people so that their loved ones lack nothing.

One of the members is Sra. Mirtha, who works in retail. She sells all types of clothes and says that her business has allowed her to help her family get ahead. Mirtha is also able to provide a better quality of life for her loved ones. She indicates that the COVID-19 pandemic affected her business since she was not able to work normally, which impacted her income. Mirtha looks for ways to excel and grow so that she can keep helping her family in order to provide them with what they need.

She is requesting a loan to buy all types of clothes to sell. By investing in her business, she will be able to restart it and succeed. Mirtha appreciates the opportunity she has received to access capital for her business so that she can keep it in operation.
