Las Margaritas 1 Group's story

Doña Gloria Modesta González is a single mother who has studied through the fifth grade of primary school and has three children she cares for. She has worked for 15 years running a store that provides items for everyday use.

Counting on their enthusiasm and mutual help several neighbors have organized a group to apply for a loan. This solidarity group is called Las Margaritas 1. The group consists of six women who work in diverse fields, among which we can mention raising animals, handicraft production of shirts and blouses, and raising domestic animals.

Gloria will use the loan to buy merchandise for her everyday items store and increase the volume of sales. Each one of them hopes to obtain increased earnings from her work.

In this group: Gloria Modesta , Francisca , Felisa , Catarina , Maria , Antonia
