A loan of $1,600 helped a member to buy perfumes to sell.

San Rafael Group's story

The San Rafael group is in its first cycle with the Women’s Committee program. They got together because they saw a great opportunity for progress, not just for themselves, but also for their families. That is why they formed this communal bank.

Maria is one of the members, and she is getting ahead with great effort. She does so thanks to her work of selling all types of perfume. She says that she has high seasons and low seasons. Nevertheless, she does not tire of struggling and putting forth great effort because everything is for her family.

Her dream is to be able to continue working with her group and to reach the program’s highest level.

She is requesting this loan to buy perfumes. This way she will have a greater variety for her customers. She also has orders to fill.

In this group: Veronica, Benigna, Maria, Maria, Inocencia, Cirila, Esther, Maria, Valentina, Mercedes, Mabel, Lorenza*
