Progreso Group's story

Many are the business activities that the members of the Progreso Group, a branch of the Panamericana headquarters, partake in. All of the members work with the hopes of giving their families a better quality of life. One of the members is Susana M., a married mother of three who helps to support the household by weaving blankets, a skill that she learned in school. She would like to purchase vicuna wool so that she can weave blankets out of this material because her customers prefer it. Susana has a stand at the 16 de Julio Market, but she also sells her products at Ceja Avenida Tihuanaku.


The rest of the group members sell footwear, fries, dried foods, vegetables, or other goods.

In this group: Susana Angela, Elizabeth, Margarita, Alicia Mery, Rita Maria, Luisa, Gregoria, Nimfa, Victoria Martha, Lucy, Antonia, Eli
