Las Doncellas Group's story

The Las Doncellas Group is comprised of hardworking and enterprising women who are looking for a way to help their families get ahead. One of the members is Blanca Ibón Solórzano OS., who has been selling telephones for two years. Solórzano states that her business has been very prosperous, which is why she wants to expand it and invest more capital in it.

Meanwhile, Noelia López S. started selling beef stew, and cheese, chicken or bone mondongo (a hearty Latin American soup made of slow-cooked tripe) on weekends. She managed to save enough capital to establish a fritanga--a popular restaurant that sells fried foods.

The other group member is Irma I., who has been selling clothing and fragrances for the last three years.

In this group: Blanca Ivone, Noelia Del Rosario , Irma Leticia
