Patron San Cristobal Group's story

One of the members is Hilda. She is single. She is 60 years old and she has five children. She alternates her daily activities with the business of selling cosmetics like perfumes, colognes, creams and so on. She sells in an independent manner to all of her friends and family members among other people. She has been in this business for years which is going well for her thanks to the efforts that she puts into her business every day. In this way she is able to get ahead with her family.

Hilda is requesting the loan to purchase ladies' perfumes for her business. The other members work selling clothes, in a beauty salon and as workers in private companies.

She is grateful to those who are a part of this dream by means of this method and she promises to comply with the payment of her installments in the established period of time.
