Las Bondadosas Group's story

The Group “Las Bondadosas” (The Kind-Hearted Ones) is led by Sra. Doris and consists of 13 members (12 women and 1 man). They are starting their third loan cycle together and have demonstrated unity, responsibility, and the desire to succeed in their businesses. The members engage in retail businesses selling products from their kiosks such as bread, food, empanadas, baskets, cosmetics, and perfumes. The male member works as a bricklayer. The president of the group is a nanny and has demonstrated her youthful spirit. Competition is especially high in the retail market, so the members are obligated to diversify their merchandise or move their vending posts to areas where this less competition.

They have requested a loan so that they can purchase merchandise to make them more competitive. They will also be able to acquire their own vending posts in places that are more competitive so that they can generate better earnings. Therefore, they will be able to provide their families with a better quality of life.

In this group: Doris, Adolfina, Angela, Ana, Virginia, Rosalia, Carmen Luisa, Erika Lorena, Teodora, Tito, Fabiola, Maria Juana, Carmen Aracely
