San Juan 2 Group's story

This group's name is San Juan 2. It is in its third cycle within the Women's Committee Program, where they all work and help each other in order to get ahead. They are completing the poverty elimination survey, and some of the women are living below the poverty line, that is, with very low income. The survey helps them understand each of their situations.

One of this group's members is Eulalia, who according to her first survey was at poverty level #2, that is, medium income but still low. She works selling drinks and food items, and she is improving her situation thanks to her own effort and persevering work, as well as through trainings and incentives offered by our foundation. This Committee is eager to keep working with our foundation and this is their third loan through the Committee. They are aware that thay have to work harder and consistently apply the trainings they attend.

Eulalia is requesting this loan to purchase meat to sell. It will help her define her business plan, which will in turn help her improve her income.

In this group: Antonia, Victoria, Eulalia, Gregoria, Iluminada, Matías, Zulma, Gladys, Hilda, Saturnina, Blanca, Zonia, Florinda, Basilisa*
