San Jose Group's story

The group with the name "San Jose" is a group that's in its first cycle with 15 members. The group is well-united, and located in the zone of Santaní, where all are very dedicated and responsible women who are looking for a better future for their loved ones.

One of the members is Susana, who works in handicrafts, such as crochet, painting on fabric, etc. She is a hard-working person who is looking fr a way to rise up and, in this way, to be able to give her family all that she couldn't have. Despite difficulties, Susana doesn't stay beaten, and looks for a way to be able to improve her quality of life.

She's requesting this loan to be able to buy primary materials, such as thread, embroidery frames, needles, fabric, paint, etc., for making her handicrafts.
