San Francisco Group's story

The group named “San Francisco” consists of 17 members and is in its second loan cycle with the Women’s Committee Program. All of the members are working and helping one another move forward. They are participating in the poverty elimination program.

One of the members is Sra. Graciela. She sells cheese, milk, and eggs from her home and also as a street merchant. Graciela says that her work is very humbling, but it allows her to provide everything her family needs so that they are not deprived. She is requesting a loan in order to buy milk and cheese that she can sell. This will allow her to continue working in the same manner as always.

Graciela is grateful for the opportunity she has received so that she can continue working and striving.

In this group: Rut, Anastacia, Mirian, Dadi, Karen, Norberta, Maria, Adriana, Manuela, Catalina*, Gloria, Petrona, Rosa, Graciela, Martina, Catalina*, Ramona
