San Damian Group's story

The committee is called "San Damian" and its members are in their second loan cycle with 16 members. It is a group that stands out in the neighborhood for being very supportive of one another and responsible. They all help each other always so that, by working together, they may get ahead.

Marta is the group's chair and comments that she always tries to help the group and motivate it to work harder day by day in order to overcome. She earns a living selling all types of clothing such as jackets, jeans, T-shirts and sports tops, shirts and other items. It is thanks to her effort and determination that she has been able to get ahead and help her family as much as she can.

She is seeking the loan for the purchase of winter clothing since cold weather is coming and she wishes to have a good variety to offer her customers.
