Pioneras Sj Group's story

Julia is a woman who has known how to get ahead. When she was very young, she married and did not have help from her parents. For that reason, she and her husband have had to work very hard to give her family their necessary sustenance. Julia had to open a business in her house, and this helps with family income.

The loan that she requests is to increase her capital, which will help to improve her business and therefore the income from her neighborhood store.
