Panaderas Group's story

Las Panaderas [The Bakers] is a hard-working group of five women.

The coordinator, Imelda, is a determined single woman of 50 who bakes and sells bread. Her family helps her in her business. She will invest the loan in the purchase of materials for her business such as sugar, flour, yeast, and other items. Her goal is to improve her life and that of her family through her business.

The other members are Ana (30 years old), who sells clothing and makes fried food, Maria (25 years old), who sells bread, Lilliam (33 years old), who sells bread, and Norma (35 years old), who sells cheese.
