A loan of $6,000 helped a member to buy wine, whisky, soda and more.


San Blas Group's story

The 23 members of this lending group are all very hardworking women who saw the possibility of a loan with this institution as a great opportunity to get ahead. The group is called "San Blas", and its members are very grateful for the great opportunity they have received, as all of them have benefitted from their participation in the group.

Nidia, one of the members, reports that being part of the group has enabled her to get ahead and grow her business. Nidia works in a liquor store, and she has been very fortunate to have good sales, especially during the weekends. She tells us that the work that she does is to help her family and give them everything that they need.

She is asking for this loan in order to buy drinks such as wine, whisky, sodas and more, as these are the items she sells most and stocking her store will enable her to continue to help her family.

In this group: Nilsa, Emigdia, Maria, Pabla, Maria, Maria, Benigna, Dalma, Reineria, Liliana, Rosa, Liza, Lourdes, Librada, Justina, Monica, Enriqueta, Angelica, Rocio, Maria, Nidia, Enriqueta*, Gloria*
