A loan helped a member to buy a variety of clothes and shoes to sell.


San Miguel Group's story

This group, called San Miguel, was formed in the city of San Pedro. They are fighting for a better quality of life for their loved ones. They are from an area in growth, where all seek a way to grow and move forward.

One of them is Rocio who works selling clothes and shoes. She says that although her work is modest it has allowed her to move her loved ones forward, and to seek a way to continue helping them.

Rocio says she joined this group with the goal of receiving training and to get ahead, so that her loved ones lack nothing, and don't have to experience any need. She seeks this loan to buy a variety of clothes and shoes to sell. This will allow her to take care of her customers, to boost her business, and to continue in her work.

In this group: Patricia, María, Blanca, Selva, Carmen, Lilian, Diana, María, Liz, Andresa, Perla, Fátima, Rocio, María
