A loan of $300 helped a member to buy Romanel jewelry.

Las Palmeras Group's story

The group Las Palmeras (the Palm Trees) is made up of three working women. One of them is Paula F. E., a simple and humble woman. Three years ago, with some savings, she bought and sold a few pieces of Romanel jewelry. Currently with the loans and the help of her live-in partner, her business has been growing remarkably.

The companions in the group are Rosa Esmeralda M., 39, who works as a pork butcher, and Thelma Mercedes Riva who, with the help of her husband, started a business selling shellfish-and it has been growing.

In this group: Paula, Rosa Esmeralda, Telma Mercedes
