Grupo Solidario Solidaridad Group's story

Grupo Solidario Solidaridad is formed by two members: Manuela de los Santos R. R. and Arecely del Carmen M. R.. They live in Colonia Solidaridad in Juticalpa, Olancho in Honduras.

Manuela de los Santos R. R. is 71 years old, married, and has 9 children. She has worked making flower wreaths since she was 28 years old and learned from her mother. She works with her children from 6 o’clock in the morning until 7 o’clock at night, although she doesn’t have an ending schedule. She doesn’t have much competition but when it rains it is problematic.

She will invest the loan in materials such as paper and wire to make the wreaths. The loans have helped her as she made her home and they continue helping her to maintain her business.

She lives outside of the city and pays for a lot of transport and suffers from high blood pressure. Her goal is to improve her home and to always have her business.

Arecely del Carmen M. R. sells fruits and vegetables in the central park of Juticalpa. With the loan, she will purchase fruits and vegetables to sell and increase her earnings.

In this group: Manuela De Los Santos, Arecely Del Carmen
