San Damian Group's story

The group is referred to as Padre Damian (Father Damian), paying tribute to the chapel of the same name. The group members are in their 4th loan with the women's committee, where they all have great hope to improve their lives with this challenge.

Marta, the president, sells clothing of all types and brands. She says that she has always been good in sales and it is due to this reason that she started this business. With effort and struggle, she is improving every day, helping her family, and giving them what they need.

Today, she is asking for a loan in order to invest it in autumn clothing, since the change in season is coming up and she wants to have a good variety to give her customers. She is very grateful for this opportunity that she has received.
