A loan helped a member to buy meat, flour, condiments, oil, vegetables, eggs, etc.


San Antonio Group's story

The group, San Antonio, is a new committee as part of the women's program. Everyone works and helps each other to get ahead. Each member has a business and fights to give the best to their family.

Perla is one of the members who through hard work continues to sell empanadas to get her family ahead. She mentions that although her work is modest, it has allowed her to help her family and improve their quality of life. Despite the difficulties, she fights to be better and get ahead for her loved ones.

She is asking for a loan in order to buy ingredients to make empanadas to sell. She needs to buy meat, flour, condiments, oil, vegetables, eggs, etc. She is grateful for the opportunity to be able to continue with her work and, with this, will be able to give the best to her family.
