Maria Auxiliadora Group's story

The group “Maria Auxiliadora” is from the city of Santaní. The group is made of 11 women, all friends and neighbors that joined forces with the purpose of helping their families by working together.

Mirian, a member of the group, comments that with a lot of sacrifice and effort she is helping her family through her work. She makes her living in retail and comments that she has a very well stocked convenience store through which she supplies her neighbors with what they need. She adds that she began with a small business but as time went by she went along improving her business with her effort and persistence.

She is requesting the loan for the purchase of convenience products, with which she will be able to further stock her store and in this way continue offering a wide variety of products to her clients.
