A loan of $1,250 helped a member to buy cuts of meat to sell.


8 De Marzo Group's story

The committee "8 de Marzo" (March 8th) was formed by several neighbors of the city of Santaní, and all of the members are friends and neighbors. They got together with the desire to come out ahead and give their families all that they need in order to have a dignified life without deprivation.

Maria is one of the members of this group, and she tells us that she works selling meat. Through this work she is getting ahead and helping her family. She is a person who makes the maximum effort to be able to continue growing as a merchant, and in this way improve the conditions of her life.

She is requesting the loan to buy all kinds of cuts of meat. With this, she'll be able to supply her business and offer variety to her customers. They are all grateful for this opportunity they are receiving.

In this group: Jorgelina, Claudia , Blanca , Laura , Maria , Bernardina , Antonia , Gladys , Petrona , Pablina
