The San Juan Bosco Group was formed in in the city of Este, and thanks to its members' desire to grow and overcome, they are doing the "Poverty Spotlight" program to find out each members' situation. Through everyone's work, they keep improving their economic situation.

Mercedes is one of the members, and in her survey showed that her poverty level is within level one, that is, she has a very low income. She is employed domestically and also works selling groceries. As can be seen, she is a woman that works hard and struggles to get ahead. She is trying very hard, in addition to having the responsibility of being the president of the group.

She is requesting this loan to be able to invest it in the purchase of meats, vegetables, condiments and other supplies to keep selling her groceries and to keep helping her family through her income.
