Santa Margarita Group's story

This committee was formed on the initiative of its members. The Santa Margarita committee, as it's called, is now in its seventh round of funding. The 15 members of the group are responsible, hard-working women who strive day after day to meet the goals they've set for themselves. The group's members have sacrificed a lot, year after year, to support their families and overcome the huge obstacles they've had to face. Sra. Tomasa has operated a food- and baked goods-sales business for several years. She gets up early to make the goods she sells. She says that she has many customers because the food she makes is very good. She would like to open a restaurant one day. She is applying for a loan that she will use to buy meat, eggs, milk, sugar and the other supplies she needs to make the meals and sweets that she sells. She is grateful to the Fundacion for the opportunities it has given her.

In this group: Delia, Basilia, Tomasa, Lidia, Norma, Maria, Lisandra, Maria Antonia, Maria Lucia, Norma, Ana, Sandra, Norma, Maria*, Mariela*
