Santa Catalina Group's story

The group called Santa Catalina is in its first loan cycle in the women's committee program, where they all work and help each other to get ahead. In addition, they are in the poverty elimination program, where they all struggle for a better quality of life.

One of the members is Graciela who, through her effort and continuous work, and through the sales she makes in her store, earns a living in a dignified and honest way. Graciela defines herself as a self-sacrificing person who seeks the good of her family and who seeks to give them everything she was unable to have.

She asks for this loan to purchase baked goods, beverages, fruit, vegetables, and other products.
