Trabajando Juntos Group's story

The ACPD "Trabajando Juntos" ("Working Together") is a responsible and very united group that is going through its 17th cycle. It is made up of 11 members. Wilder is the first one appearing in the photograph, along with the treasurer and secretary. The three of them make up the board of directors. The treasurer is Maribel, who is 33 years old. She is a happy, honest, and determined woman.

She has a 10-year-old daughter, and together with her partner they are moving forward. They both engage in agriculture, producing manure and other local products. Their biggest dream is to continue achieving their goals and to be an inspiration for their little daughter.

Maribel has been engaged in agriculture for four years now. To improve their current quality of life, they want to build a bathroom in their house. That is why they are applying for a loan to buy materials and be able to build their own bathroom, so they can continue improving their quality of life.

In this group: Rene, Wilber, Meliana, Angelica, Cinthia, Sarita Rosa, Juan Jose, Ilenia, Ruth, Maribel, Maritza
