Santa Catalina Group's story

Santa Catalina is a large group. They are working together and helping each other fulfill their goals. They are part of a poverty elimination survey, which involves getting to know the situation of one of them.

One of the group members is Esperanza, who in the last survey was found to be in the first poverty level (meaning very low income). She is a hair dresser and says that she has a varied clientele. Her customers always turn to her salon and thanks to this, she is getting ahead and helping her family. She sacrifices a great deal for them and she has continually progressed, thanks to her efforts.

She is asking for this loan to buy dyes, shampoo, rinses, hair rollers, scissors, and other things. In this way, she will be able to continue satisfying her customers and giving them good service.

In this group: Silvia, Juliana, Eydie, Rosalva, Lourdes, Maria, Liliana, Graciela, Myrian, Lorenza, Maria, Magdalena*, Mercedes, Lidia, Carmen, Ramona, Esperanza*, Lida*, Irene*, Alicia
