Siempre Adelante Group's story

Donatila is a member of the Siempre Adelante group, which is comprised of eight residents of the Comas district. She was elected president of the group by her colleagues in recognition of her dedication, responsibility, punctuality, and work with the group.

Donatila is 44 and has two children. She has been selling food products for 20 years. She gets them in Provincia, and she offers them to her relatives and friends. She also sells by orders. By this work she has been able to educate her children and help her husband economically. Soon she will support her youngest child with the costs of enrolling in a university. It would really please him to study for a professional career in the near future.

In this group: Eladio Segundo, Silvia, Donatila Eulalia, Liz Abigail, Maria Lucero*, Blanca, Ana Estela, Laura
