Cielo Azul Group's story

Edith has worked and studied from a very young age. Due to economic reasons she had to move to the city where she worked as a clothing sales assistant. That is where she became familiar with the business and was encouraged to import clothes that she would sell as a street vendor in the main markets.

Edith is very good at selling clothes and she has customers in different markets. She is applying for a loan to buy a variety of merchandise (women’s and children’s clothing) in order to expand her business and cover her children’s expenses.

The Cielo Azul Group consists of nine members. There are only three people in the photo because of social distancing due to the pandemic. Gregoria is the president of the group, she is wearing a light blue apron and blue shawl; in the middle is Gladys who is the secretary, she is wearing a beige sweater; the third is Edith who is the treasurer, she is wearing a brown sweater with black sleeves.
