Grupo Las Palmas 1 Group's story

Isabel is a 23-year-old woman. She is single with a beautiful family with whom she lives in a community in the village of Guineales.

In order to have income, she works buying and selling traditional clothing. She has been doing this for 6 years, but to improve her income, she also works as a seamstress.

Isabel enjoys her two occupations because they allow her to express her creativity and joy. With the goal of continuing to prosper in her business, she has decided to request a loan that she will invest in the purchase and sale of traditional regional clothing. This will better satisfy the needs of her customers.

Isabel's great dream is to strengthen her business and improve her family's economic income.
