Rio Dulce Group's story

Rio Dulce” (Sweet River) is the name of community association that is beginning its third cycle with the “Centro Focal de Villa Exaltacion”. Like all organizations, the “Rio Dulce” is guided by a board of directors, which includes a president, a treasurer and a secretary.
Mrs. Lucia is married and the president of this organization. She has been making large skirts for the past three years. She does this work at her home. This allows her to be at home and take care of her family. This is her first term as president. The association is confident that it will be a good term for her. The money that she is asking for, Bx2000, will be invested in the purchase of fabric as each skirt requires six to seven meters of fabric and the same amount of lining. The skirt construction requires a lot of capital, especially when she has a lot of orders.
The credit association is made up of eight women. They have different businesses such as sewing skirts, knitting sweaters, selling used clothes, selling large skirts, selling natural medicine, constructing beds or selling bedspreads and comforters.

In this group: Lucia Justa, Guillermina, Ricarda, Beatriza, Emma Hilaria, Martha, Wilma, Mayra
