Los Galanes Group's story

Ena del Carmen R. L., Raquel Nohemi Torres Gaitá and Luis Beltrán R. Méndez are the members of the Los Galanes group. They are three hard-working, enterprising people that are fruit and vegetable merchants.

This group has participated in financial benefits, training sessions, gender and business development workshops that have helped them better manage their businesses. A clear example of this is Ena del Carmen R. L., group coordinator, who started selling perishables like mangos, tamarind and mammon (a tropical Central American fruit) in 2003.

At the beginning, she only sold a few products because she lacked sufficient funds to stock more. Currently, she buys a wider variety of crops in larger amounts so that her business has progressed satisfactorily and she dreams of having a space to sell second-hand clothes in the not too distant future.

In this group: Ena Del Carmen , Raquel Nohemi, Luis Beltran
