A loan helped a member to buy drinks, dairy products, vegetables, beef, baked goods, and other products.


San Patricio Group's story

The San Patricio group is a unified committee made up of women heads of household who fight to improve their families' quality of life. They are also in the poverty elimination program.

One of the members is Eva. She makes a living selling a variety of products in her store, which generates a good income so she can support her family. She recently set up a small café, where she makes and sells snacks, meals, and desserts.

She is a hardworking person who fights so that her loved ones do not have to go without, as she did. She is thankful for the opportunity to be part of this group, which will be a big help to her.

She is seeking this loan to buy a variety of products to sell, such as drinks, dairy products, vegetables, beef, baked goods, and other products.
