Santa Lucía Group's story

The Santa Lucia Committee was established five years ago with the help of another committee that was working in the area.

After five years of hard work, this committee from San Lorenzo has grown both socially and economically. The group is known locally for its hardworking women. Sra. Mirian F. is the group president. She has a grocery store as her small business so that she can generate more income for her family.
