Alfarero Group's story

The communal bank Alfarero is composed of Irene Auxiliadora T. U., 39 years old, Heydi Natalia R. U., 22 years old, and Fabiola del Carmen B. M., 27 years old, three women who have learned to manage in life despite being young.

Irene, who is the coordinator, has been buying and selling gold and silver for a living for 3 years. She started, with a little of her own capital, by buying jewelry and reselling it for a higher price. She will use this loan to buy higher value jewelry. Heydi works at home as a stylist in addition to selling clothing out of her home. Fabiola sells soda, beer and Eskimo products out of her home.
