San Jose Group's story

The "San José" group is on its second loan cycle. The members - all women - of this group are self-sacrificing and are fighting to get ahead and to help their families.

Vilma is one member of the group. She is a housewife but, with this loan, she would like to start a business selling hot food. Vilma hopes you will endorse her plan so that, with time, she can start on a new path and improve her life.
