Caminando Juntas Group's story

The group “Caminando Juntas” is represented by Rosa del Carmen and is comprised of 10 very hardworking members with similar trades. Nearly all of them have to do with cosmetology, including cosmetology booths, skincare, massage booths, juice and tea sales, jewelry sales, baking and selling pastries, hairdressing, and a beauty salon. The competition in the cosmetology market is increasingly aggressive, so each person has their own specialty. These partners can be even more competitive in this market with better capabilities and equipment. For this reason, they seek credit to acquire more modern machinery and tools to proviD. more specialized services. Some of the members wish to expand their stores to give their demanding clients more comfort and increase their earnings, which they will then use to improve their families' quality of life. Although this is their first loan cycle, the partners have previous experience with communal credit groups in institutions similar to Fundación Agrocapital, who they thank for their support and trust.

In this group: Rosa Del Carmen, Maria Salome, Vanessa, Cintya Daisy, Claudia, Alejandra Corina, Ricardo Marcos, Susi, Miriam Janet, Claudia
