San Miguel Group's story

The group named San Miguel is on their first loan cycle with the Women’s Committee Program. They are doing the elimination of poverty survey. Ten members are below the poverty line with very low incomes. They are learning to work together and help each other.

One of the members is Dora, who in her last survey showed a poverty level within level one (red), that is, with a very low income. Through continuous effort and work her situation is improving, but she is also aware that the work and effort she is putting in must be continuous and permanent if she is to achieve total success and be able to give her family better well-being. Selling farm products is one of the jobs she does. It is also fitting to point out that the majority of the women in the group are illiterate and are now retaking their studies.

Dora is requesting this loan so she can purchase farm supplies, which will help her to settle her business plan and improve her income.

In this group: Dora, Maria, Lidia, Angelica, Luisa, Magdalena, Reina, Feliciana, Luz, Honorata, Damiana, Mary, Mirna, Andrea, Ramona, Perpetua, Torivia, Maria, Hermidonia, Maura
