María's Group's story
María's Group consists of 3 enterprising women. The president of the group is Maria because she is a loving, kind, sociable and good woman. She lives with her 4 children in Salcedo which is about half an hour away from Latacunga in the Sierra Centro of Ecuador. Maria produces juices and 'espumilla' which is egg white blended with any fruit. This is the first time she has worked with Fodemi. The loan she is asking for will be invested in buying fruit to increase production, which will help her obtain a good income and allow her to educate her daughters. Her dream is to see her daughters as professionals and that her business continue to grow economically. The other two members of the group manufacture clothing and will use the loan to buy raw materials (knitted fabric)..
