A loan of $1,050 helped a member purchase supplies for making tortillas.

Gaitan Group's story

The G. Group consists of three hardworking women. One of them is Sra. Martha Rosa L. Chavarría who has a tortilla shop. She started this business six years ago upon the suggestion of her brother who encouraged her to engage in this venture. At first she bought a fourth of a quintal (1 quintal = 46kg) of corn, but now she needs to buy half a quintal for her business.

The other members of this group are María Asunción B. G., who has been selling tortillas and soups for 28 years, and Fátima de los Reyes G. García, who has managed a small grocery store for five years.

In this group: Maria Asención , Martha Rosa , Fatima De Los Reyes
