Las Esteritas Group's story

Several years ago Natividad had a restaurant where she herself did the cooking; in time, however, she could no longer keep it going. Now, she’s a fruit and vegetable merchant; a business that helps her subsist.

Herlinda has sold groceries, sweets and soft-drinks in the market for several years. She has school age children for whom she must work because her husband does not have a steady job; he contributes his few earnings to household support.

The members are punctual and responsible with their loans; they realize they must continue to make the effort in order to progress.
