The group is known in its neighborhood for being unified, supportive, and responsible. The members possess a great entrepreneurial spirit as they engage in their group activities.

One of the members is Sra. Mercedes, who has been selling clothes for some time. She says that through her work and sacrifice, she has been able to move forward and help her family. One of her goals is to continue growing through her business, so she wants to be able to invest in it. She is requesting a loan to buy clothing of all types such as t-shirts, trousers, and other items so that she can restock her inventory and satisfy her customers.
