Santa Maria. Group's story

The "Santa María" communal bank has 10 members and is in its second cycle. Upon finishing the first cycle they found themselves very satisfied with the support of the foundation. They are enthusiastic about continuing with this support since they came out well and took maximum advantage of the previous loan.

María Rosa, one of the members of the group, has a small grocery store that she wants to stock with a greater variety of products that she can offer her customers. She also wants to be able to enlarge her store. All of this is to satisfy the basic needs of her customers and generate more income for her household.

She is asking for the loan in order to be able to stock her store with milk products, vegetables, etc.

In this group: Hilda, Mirian , Juana , Alicia , Ramona , Luz , Porfiria , Maria , Isabel , Celsa
