Las Aguilas Group's story

Mrs. Hilaria always wanted to have her own business and she realized that there weren’t any convenience stores in her neighborhood. She saved money and began selling soft drinks and then cookies, and other things. With the profits from her sales she bought what people asked for and soon she succeeded in having more products to sell. Her store is growing as well as her income. With the profits from her work she has been able to support her children who are in the university. She helps them with transportation and other things. She is happy that she can help them and they also help her in the store. Her business is doing well and there is still no competition. Her sales are good and she has started selling gas and she’s sure she will get customers in this area.
Hilaria feels part of the group “LAS AGUILAS”. She is the treasurer. She will use her loan to buy more shelving to display her products so she can have more sales. She has thought carefully about the future and she wants to work selling grocery products wholesale. She is sure that she will be able to do it because she has the support of her children who will become professionals thanks to her efforts.
