San Miguel Group's story

This group was started by Sra. Luisa C. who invited her neighbors to form a committee. The members engage in activities based on their skill sets and have the equipment needed to run their businesses.


One of the members is Sra. Eusebia, a teacher. She joined the committee and wants to start a business so that she can generate extra income. Eusebia is requesting a loan in order to buy clothing and shoes that she can sell in her spare time. Sometime later she hopes to open a boutique where she can display her merchandise.

In this group: Eusebia, Luisa, Cinthia, Ada, Luisa, Antonia, Maria, Arminda, Balbina, Sebastina, Maria, Felicita, Antonela, Lourdes*
