A loan of $2,825 helped a member to buy ingredients to prepare food.

San Sebastian Group's story

Vitalina’s in a common law relationship; she’s 59-years-old and completed first grade. She has two children and both of them are attending school. She works making refreshments to sell them near her house and in nearby locations. She started the business with just a few sales and to date has 10 years’ experience.

She decided to organize a group to be able to request a loan she’ll use to buy ingredients to prepare more refreshments and increase her working capital. In future, she’d like to have more sales and improve her profits.

The other group members sell refreshments and run basic staple stores. Eight members appear in the photo but the loan was only granted to seven of them.

In this group: Vitalina , Antonieta Marisol , Lesvi Ramona Matias , Luciana , Marta Sofia , Vindy Ana Rosa , Tomasa Mauricia
