Cumplidas Group's story

It is a group of happy people who have a great vision of the future. They have been friends for a long time. Their ages vary from 19 to 51 years old. The president has two daughters. The president, Marina, sells cosmetics. Three times a week she washes clothes. The members chose her to be president because of her enthusiasm, responsibility, and the commitment she has to her work and the institution.

The women have different businesses like selling new clothes for adults, selling underwear, selling groceries, and selling food. Some of the businesses are in fixed locations, and others are street vendors. There are competing businesses, but the women have loyal customers who buy from then constantly. In the event that they have difficulties in their business, they diversify their commercial activity to obtain income.

Some of them start to work part time with a fixed salary, and they take care of their business the rest of the time. The members want to take advantage of offers by Avon, Ebel, and Ésika, and they want to buy more clothes and supplies (rice, noodles). The president would like to have an established business in the future so that she would not have to sell her products as a street vendor. She would also like to obtain a better future for her children.

This group is in its third cycle. They know each other very well. Only four members are participating in a third cycle.

In this group: Marina, Nancy, Eliana, Kitty, Maria Teresa, Dionicia, Yenny, Antonia, Veronica, Erika Graciela, Paola Gabriela, Aleida
