Reina De La Paz Group's story

The "Reina de la Paz" group is a new group composed of fourteen people, of whom four are men and ten are women. All the members do different things to make a living, such as selling food, gas, or clothes, baking bread, providing public transport and educating children in schools. There is a high level of competition, but the members of the group know how to stay afloat with the sales of their products. However, they need economic support for the low periods during which they need to change products or increase their merchandise, and for this reason they require financing. Despite the fact that the group is newly formed, they have experience of support groups of this kind due to previous financing from instiutions similar to the Agrocapital foundation, who offer support to grow their businesses and improve the quality of life of their families.

In this group: Gabriela, Teresa, Carola, Lidia, Jonny, Francisco, Maria Mabel, Hilda, Guisela Aurora*, Wilson, Pabla, Bernarda, Alexey, Maria Esther
