Confiemos En Dios Group's story

This solidarity group is made up of three members and is organised by Maria. She is a strong woman and has worked in her business for 8 years which makes tortillas and sells nacatamales [maize, meat and rice wrapped in banana leaf] in her community. Her husband helps the business financially.

She is asking for this loan to buy corn, potatoes, pork, mint, achiote [annatto spices], onions, firewood etc. to increase sales and achieve her goal to get ahead in expanding her business. With previous loans, the business has gained financial stability, supporting her business and family.

Another member, Lidia, is 39 years old and is a street vendor in her community. Maria is 42 years old and sells cosmetics.

In this group: Maria Ines, Lidia Del Carmen, Maria Guadalupe
