El Gs De Los Colores Group's story

Santa is 48 years old and single. He has a son named Óscar who attends first-grade at preparatory school. Santa is a teacher at a secondary school in a nearby village, and she also works selling food in the market; she sells rolls stuffed with pork. She lives in a very tranquil community called "Las Vigas" with her 17-year-old child, and she is currently selling more because her village is celebrating its traditional holiday.

Santa will invest her loan in purchasing ingredients for making her food, such as oil, vegetables, meat, etc. She only hopes now that it will help her improve her business as she would like her business to grow and to set up premises with a restaurant where she can sell her food and breakfasts. She hopes to be able to make everything happen that she wants, and is super grateful to be looking forward to this.

Santa belongs to the group "El GS de los Colores", which is made up of six women and two men. They all have businesses as follow: José Alfredo has a store selling shoes and clothing; Adelina sells clothing; Maria sells shoes and bags for men and women; Eva has a butchers; José Armando provides transportation services; Yumayra sells clothing; and Sandy Luz sells shellfish. All of them hope that things go very well.
