San Blas Group's story

The 'San Blas' group are on their fourteenth loan cycle. They all completed the poverty stoplight survey which lets them rate their incomes. Four of the group's members live below the poverty line which means they have very low income.

One of the members of this group is Lourdes who, when she completed the survey, was shown to be at an intermediate level. She says that her business is selling all kinds of food. She has gained a very good customer base as she always prepares very good food. Lourdes comments that she would like to continue working hard so that she can provide her family with what they need and improve their financial situation.

Lourdes is requesting this loan to invest in buying meat, condiments, vegetables, eggs, flour, etc. so that she can continue preparing the food that she sells and continue pleasing her customers.

In this group: Mirian, Amelia, Lucrecia, Francisca, Maria, Laura, Maria, Lourdes, Higinia, Juana, Ramona, Jorgelina, Maria, Valeriana, Ingrid, Lilian, Irene, Gloria*
