Las Merceditas Group's story

The Las Merceditas Group was formed in 2008. With a lot of hard work and effort, they are now in their eighth loan cycle. They work closely together in the group. Besides each member's independent work, they also participate in activities as a group. They help each other reach their goals which is to work hard to support their families.

One moving story is that of Luisa. Luisa sells sheets, food, and fish. She is a very dynamic woman, as you can see. Thanks to her hard work she is supporting her family and providing them with what they need day to day.

She is seeking a loan so that she can buy sheets and fish so that she can continue working and providing her family with what they need every day.
