Las Uvas Group's story

This group is comprised of five enterprising members. One of these members is Maria, a 35-year-old married woman. For the past 10 years, she has sold pig meat and food products such as fried meat, pork rinds, and pig heads. Her sister helps her with the business. She has been a client of the institution for seven years and has demonstrated herself as making good payments. She will invest the loan into buying pig meat such as pork, ribs, and heads.
