Maria Jesus' Group's story

The solidarity group El Almendro is composed of three hard-working women, who are close friends. Bellow is a list of their various activities:

Mrs. Maria Elba F. is the group leader and is a very responsible person. She makes her living from the production and sale of concrete blocks – an activity which she performs with the help of her husband and children. Maria would like to get better tools in order to make more concrete blocks.

Mrs. Maria Jesus H. A. has two children and makes her living from the sale of food, candy, and soda in the main square of her neighborhood, San Jose, which is in Nacaome City. She is motivated by the desire to help her family prosper and develop her business.

Mrs. Maria Isabel F. has three grown-up children. Maria makes her living from the sale of soda, juice, water, cookies, candy, and seasonal fruit. One day, she would like to be able to buy her own stall in the main market in Nacaome City.

All three of these women are true fighters with strong desires to succeed. All of them need this loan to improve their quality of life and that of their families.

In this group: Maria Jesus, Maria Isabel, Maria Elba
