Las Campanitas Group's story

Mrs. Carolina is the head of the group “Las Campanitas” (The Little Bells). This group has ten members. They are beginning their first loan cycle. They have a lot of hope to grow their businesses since an institution that has confidence in their capacity and their desire to expand and move forward backs them. The majority of the members sell products such as clothes, fish, vegetables, breakfast, potatoes and prepared food. For example, the president sells fruit. She is in her stall in the Bolivar Market most of her time. Some of the time she is also caring for her children in her stall, as she doesn’t have anyone else to care for them. She hopes to proviD. her children with a good education so that they can have a good future. It is because of this that Mrs. Carolina works so hard each day. She has to support her young ones and maintain her home. In the competitive sense, she would like to mention that the members ought to have good quality products to offer to their customers. For this reason they are asking for a loan to increase their working capital and increase their inventory with competitive products. Other members would like to invest in the repair of their stalls in order to give their customers a more comfortable experience. These members sell breakfast. The remaining members want to offer a greater variety of products in order to increase their earnings. Because of the competition, many members have had to stop selling certain products. With effort and dedication the members know how to move forward and bring the bread home each day to their families.

In this group: Carolina Lindaura, Flavia Eva, Liliana Mariela, Juana, Santusa, Detelvina, Nelida, Lucinda, Heliza, Gladys
