Bleidy is the group president. She sells meals at in different local markets. She has been working in this area for the past three years, and she will use her loan to increase her working capital. Alejandra and Jimena have a grocery store where they have been selling dry goods for about 10 years. Maria, Esther, Dania and Neiza sell cosmetics (in bulk and individually), mostly via a catalog. They have an average of 3 years of experience in this field.
