Picaflor Group's story

The "Picaflor" group consists of 12 members having different activities such as selling compact discs, baby clothing, jewelry, furniture, and articles of clothing, but the most outstanding are the woven blankets and sweaters which are sold in the different street markets in the city, where they sell them wholesale. The members are entering their fourth loan cycle working with the Agrocapital foundation, with whom they have demostrated honesty and responsibility in their repayment. The previous loans have enabled the members to improve their products as well as the quality of life of their families. The current loan is for the purchase of raw materials or additional merchandise to sell, as well as the purchase of work tools to improve the quality of their products and maximize their production, particularly of their textiles.
