Santa Lucia Group's story

The ladies of the Santa Lucia committee will use their loans to develop their business so they can meet their clients' needs and generate more income for their families. This will be their second loan; with much effort and sacrifice, they were able to pay back their first loan. Lidia is one of the group members; she devotes herself to sales, has a small restaurant as well as a larder, which she was able to obtain with great effort. She says that at the beginning it was quite hard, but that little by little, her business was able to take off and that her business is now growing. She is requesting this loan to purchase vegetables, fruit, goods in bulk, milk and other products. She is grateful for the opportunity she will be granted, as the loan will allow her to improve sales and to continue helping her family as she has been doing.
