A loan helped a member to purchase cheese to sell.


San Miguel Group's story

These are 15 women who struggle for a better quality of life for their loved ones. They are determined, enterprising, and self-sacrificing women who struggle for a better future. They are also in the poverty elimination program, where they all seek the way to get ahead.

One of them is Herminia, who works making and selling cheeses. She is a self-sacrificing person who struggles for her loved ones, to be able to give her loved ones the best. Herminia defines herself as a determined woman who sacrifices a lot and, with effort, has managed to get ahead and achieve her goals.

She asks for this loan to purchase cheese in bulk to sell, and with this to be able to continue with her work as she has been doing.
