San Miguel Group's story

The San Miguel Committee was formed by a group of neighbors and friends from the city of San Lorenzo. They heard about the Program of Women Entrepreneurs and decided to gather together to form their own committee. There are currently 18 members. All of them work hard and responsibly. These female heads of household decided to find a way to provide for the daily needs of their children and their families.

Sra. Maria prepares and sells food. She has a small vending post at the market. Maria wakes up early in the morning and heads to work so that she can prepare and sell her dishes. Someday she hopes to expand her small vending post so that she can accommodate more customers.

Maria is requesting a loan so that she can buy everything she needs for preparing her dishes such as meat, chicken, vegetables, oil, eggs, and other items. She has faith that this loan will help her generate more income.
