Guadalupe 1 Group's story

Zulma lives with her partner and is the mother of 3 children. She sells quinoa from her home. She learned this business from her parents 5 years ago. The dream she has is to be able to generate more income and to own a house.

Zulma, dressed in a black tracksuit and a t-shirt with a black pattern, is the president. Amalia, with a black sweater and grey t-shirt, is the treasurer. Yolanda, with a lilac-colored sweater, blue jeans, and a lilac-colored t-shirt with white stripes, is the recording secretary. This loan will benefit 8 microentrepreneurs who want to get ahead and realize their dreams.
