A loan of $3,450 helped a member purchase supplies for hairdressing and a fast-food stall.

San Jose Obrero Group's story

The San Jose Obrero committee formed with the coming-together of several neighbors in the city of Santani, a city with low access to communication means. The majority of the members are from the surrounding colonies.

Gessica is a hairdresser, and she also has a fast-food stall. You can see her as a very hardworking person, and she always finds herself with plenty of work. She is fighting for her family, to be able to give them what she could not have. She also tells us that she dreams of her colony growing and that there will be better security for the residents.

She is requesting this loan to be able to purchase supplies for her hairdresser shop and also for her fast-food stall, which are her main sources of income.
