A loan helped a member to buy clay and firewood for her brick business.

Santo Tomas Group's story

This committee was formed by members whose goal is to provide better living conditions for their families. They want to grow, not only financially, but also as people. It should be mentioned that the COVID-19 pandemic affected their businesses and their incomes, which was a result of not being able to work.

One of the members is Sra. Silvina, who manages a brickyard. She says that her business has enabled her to help her family and provide them a decent life. Silvina is a determined individual who, despite the difficulties she faces each day, is able to excel so that her family lacks nothing. She indicated that she was not able to work during the pandemic, which affected her business. Despite this, she looks for ways to succeed and move forward so that she can continue providing the best for her loved ones.

Silvina is requesting a loan to use as investment capital for her business. She plans to buy clay and firewood so that she can continue her work. Silvina appreciates the opportunity she has received to restart her business.
