La Union Group's story

La Union (The Union) is a committee of the town of San Lorenzo. All the members are women of the area who do their best to provide for the needs of their families. They are the heads of their households and they want to grant a better future to themselves as well as to their families.
Mercedes is the president of the group; she is a retailer and she says she has a well-stocked store thanks to which she satisfies the requests from her neighbors and other people. She says she has started with a small shop, but she has succeeded in making it grow thanks to her hard work and her great effort. She dreams of expanding her shop in order to grow as a micro entrepreneur.
She is requesting a loan to stock up her small store with drinks, dairy products, vegetables, fruits and other basic necessities with which she will keep her shop well supplied.
