Dúo Estrellas De San Mateo Group's story

Estrellas de San Mateo (Stars of St. Matthew) Group


This group includes Doña María Candelaria, who is 52 years old and currently has four children under her care. She says that she gave birth to 13 children and most of them are grown, married, and have their own families.


María Candelaria is requesting a loan so that she can invest in the purchase of everyday consumer products (food) such as rice, beans, corn, sugar, salt, noodles, instant soups, oil, carbonated water, and other items. Her business is located in her home. María Candelaria’s goal is to buy a display cabinet with the profit she earns. Part of her gains will be invested in planting zucchini and green beans, a task that she normally performed when she lived with her husband. She hopes to receive the loan she requested since it will be blessing for her.
