Brisas Del Rio Group's story

The Brisas del Rio group is located in the Brisas del Rio neighborhood. It is composed of three hard-working women. Following are detailed the different activities that they do: Senora Exdulia C. is an enterprising woman, very dedicated to her studies and to her work. Exdulia produces and sells tortillas, getting up every day at 4 am to cook her rich tortillas, then going to study. She has no parents, they have passed on, and she has been an orphan since the age of 6, studying little by little. She will use the loan to increase her sales, earning a better income. Senora Emerita M. is the mother of 2 children. Emerita sells baleadas (tortillas filled with beans) house to house, getting up every day at 4 am to make her rich baleadas. She has the help of her husband to care for the expenses of the household and of the children. She will use the loan to buy raw materials to make the baleadas. Senora Felix M. is very dedicated to her family, she is the mother of 2 children, she cooks and sells tortillas. Every day she gets up at 4 am to make her rich tortillas, then she goes out to sell them near her home. She will use the loan to buy corn flour, lime, firewood so she can have increased production, more sales, and greater earnings needed to take care of household expenses.
