San Isidro Group's story

The group called “San Isidro” is in its fifth loan cycle with the Women’s Committee Program. All of the members are giving everything they have in order to get ahead. They have taken a poverty elimination survey so that each member becomes familiar with her own situation. Five members are below the poverty line.

Sra. Carmen is a manicurist and feels very good about what she does. She is a skillful individual who is knowledgeable about sculpting nails and making designs, which is what she enjoys doing most for her clients. Since she does very good work, Carmen is well-known in her neighborhood. Today she is requesting a loan so that she can improve her inventory of supplies. She needs nail polishes, acetone, cotton swabs, and other items so that she can continue working and providing good service to her clients like she always does. Carmen is grateful for the help she has received since it will be very useful.

In this group: Miguelina, Carmen, Silvia, Cinthia, Edelmira, Elvira, Feliciana, Leonora, Eulalia, Carmen, Fatima, Sara, Adriana, Aquilina*, Sandra
