Caminantes Group's story

The "Caminates" group is represented by señora María Rosalia and has 12 members, who are caring, dynamic, and hard-working people. They have been friends for a long time, and their ages range from 24 to 63 years. The members make a living by selling fruit, which they do at a market every Monday. The other women sell food for lunch and dinner, and still others sell used clothing for children. All of them have their own stands in the market near their neighborhood. The women have their customers well-selected, and they know that the competition is great. To fight it, they need more merchandise and to expand their working environment. This is why they need the credit that will help them generate more income to offer their families a better quality of life. This is the group's first loan, but in their meetings, they have demonstrated their desire to get ahead as well as their responsibility, honesty, and above all, their teamwork, which is essential in a support group.

In this group: Maria Rosalia, Lidia, Celeni Ofelia, Julietta Teresa, Rosmin, Paula Pacesa, Cinda, Esteban, Betty, Viviana, Janeth Epifania, Elizabeth Martha
