Virgen Las Mercedes Group's story

The committee known as “Virgen Las Mercedes” consists of 12 members who are participating in their second loan cycle. All of them work together and help one another so that they can get ahead and provide the best for their families.

Juana is a member of the group. She says that thanks to the work she has performed with her group, she has been able to get ahead and help her family. Juana has a well-stocked food pantry where she works every day beginning in the early morning hours. Her dream is to continue expanding her shop so that she can keep moving forward.

She is requesting a loan in order to buy beverages, dairy products, baked goods, vegetables, greens, and other items so that she can continue offering the variety that her customers are accustomed to having.
