Santa Monica Group's story

“Santa Mónica” is in its first cycle. They all work and help each other out in order to get ahead and gradually improve their and their families’ lives. They are taking the poverty elimination survey and three of the women are below the poverty line, that is to say their source of income is not very secure. Sulma is one of the members. She has a beauty salon and the work she does should be pointed out because she works every day trying to improve the service she provides her customers and also to earn higher income to help her family who are her inspiration. She’s requesting this loan to buy all types of emery boards, brushes, eyelashes and glue, decorative thread, cotton, etc. which will help her realize her business plan which in turn will help her improve her income.
