San Jose Obrero Group's story

The San Jose Obrero group is on its fourth loan cycle. The committee is made up of women, where they all work hard and help each other so that, through working together, they can help their families to get out of poverty. One of the members is Mirian, who in her last survey was at a level of poverty within level one, which is red, or below the poverty line. Despite this, she has a lot of energy to keep fighting and working to help her family. In addition to the work that she does (food sales), the work of the other members should be emphasized. They follow a system of training and verifications that demand and at the same time encourage the women to fight to overcome poverty. Mirian is asking for the loan to buy ingredients to prepare the food that she sells, like meat, condiments, vegetables, and more.
