El Billar Group's story

The Billar group is made up of three women who are hardworking, eager, and enterprising. One of them is María Auxiliadora R., the group’s coordinator. She has been selling clothing such as shirts, blouses, pants, jeans etc. for three years. She began with an investment of 2,000 córdobas in the business, but now it is larger because she has a regular clientele.

The other members of the group are Dina Isabel R. R. who has been selling clothing and shoes since 2003, and María de los Ángeles L. Calero who began selling drinks at the age of 17, and now has her own refreshment stand.

The dream of the three women is to improve their businesses, have their own stalls, and buy other products to sell. R., for example, would like to have a store, Lezema a bakery, and R. just wants to get on in life. For these reasons, they are putting into practice the knowledge they have gained through Kiva partner Adim’s training programs.
