El Sol Group's story

The community group EL SOL meets at Panamericana, one of Pro Mujer's offices. Its president, Maria C. C., has operated a business making and selling ice cream for 25 years. She picked up the skills for the work on her own. With her first Pro Mujer loan, she bought an ice cream maker and she has slowly equipped the business ever since. She now needs a loan to buy basic supplies like gelatin and sugar. Maria sells her product at a spot near a sports field. Her daughter helps her with the business but she considers the whole community group to be her family because of the help they have provided.

The other group members operate various kinds of sales, production and service businesses.

In this group: María, Esther, Herencia Juana, Daniel José, Martha Claudia, Maria Elena, Marina, Jhannet Susana, Juana, Sonia, Janeth
