Bendición Group's story

The women in this group use their loans to purchase varying items. Some use the money to buy lettuce, tomato, meat, bread, mayonnaise, oil and other items necessary for cooking pastries and meals to sell at lunch time. Others use it to purchase fabric, thread and buttons for making clothing, sheets and men's and women's garments. Yet others use their loans to buy soft drinks, wines, beer, lingerie, earrings, necklaces, chains and bracelets to sell.

Bendición Group was founded just two years ago with the help of another group that was working in the area. To date, members have learned to work together and meet deadlines, whilst bettering their business activities and helping each other with entrepreneurial advice.
