Las Rosas De Sacamilaj Group's story

Santos is 46 years old, married, and completed three years of 'educación primaria' (school for children aged 7-14). She has four children, none of whom attend school. Santos' business is buying and selling tomatoes. She started this business through her own initiative and has 10 years experience.

Santos formed a group to request a loan which she will use to buy tomatoes in order to boost her business. In the future, she would like to have large business premises which she could use for distributing tomatoes to small retailers. The other members of this group work selling animals, vegetables and groceries.
