San Blás Group's story

San Blas is the name of an excellent group of women which formed in the city of Itá. The group emerged after it contacted an advisor at a weekly meeting that was taking place in the area and currently is it in its 3rd loan cycle as a united group with the programme. Maria is one of the members of this hard-working group and she works in sales. She has had a store for some time and thanks to the sales that she makes she has been able to grow as a trader and help her family. She is a visionary and hard-working person. She is requesting this loan to buy groceries, drinks, dairy products and other items, which are in demand.
