San Roque Group's story

The San Roque committee has seventeen members in the city of Concepción and all have a small business. Despite being small businesses the women are very excited about them and help each other. They are persevering and inspire the others to continue struggling for their families.

Mercedes is a hardworking and entrepreneurial woman who sells clothing. She tells us that she started very small with only a few sales but then it began growing and now she has a good customer base. Her goal is to continue working in the same way that she has been doing to be able to continue expanding.
She requests a loan to supply her business with summer clothing such as Bermuda shorts, shirts, dresses, skirts, and other clothing.
