Girasoles Group's story

The Girasoles group is made up of three hard-working, enterprising people: Patricia del Carmen G., Bismar de Jesús C. H. & Ana Cristina T.. They are from Nindirí whose every nook and cranny of this picturesque town is infused with the history of our ancestors back to pre-Columbian times. Patricia del Carmen G. has sold used clothing for the last four years. She began as a peddler but now has improvised a small, covered shed on her porch from which to offer her wares. This young, 28-year-old, woman works hard with the goal in sight to have her own well-equipped store. Her collegues Bismar de Jesús C. H. and Ana Cristina T. also are used clothing peddlers; they will use the funding to buy stock merchandise, especially school uniforms, which are big sellers this time of year.

In this group: Patricia Del Carmen, Bismar De Jesús, Ana Cristina
