21 De Octubre Group's story

Currently, she plans to invest loan proceeds in her food business, given that the returns are greater. The remaining participants, members of both the 21 de Octubre Communal Association and the Centro Focal Panamericana, have businesses such as the weaving of multicolored cloth (colored fabric), cosmetics sales, dry groceries sales, and pastry making.
