Mujeres Divinas Group's story

The Mujeres Divinas (Divine Women) Group is located in the Nueva Caucara housing development of the city of San Lorenzo. This group is comprised of three women, all neighbors who have known each other for a long time. They all own businesses and are very humble women with the desire for self-improvement. Next, details will be given regarding the different businesses that these women own.

Ms. Arlis N. A. is a 34-year-old married mother with three dependent children. Arlis sells provisions such as cornmeal, rice, soap, sugar, chicken, butter, Extremaduran chorizo (seasoned pork sausage), juice, etc. She has been running this business from her home for several years. This loan will be used to purchase more goods so that she can restock her general store.

Ms. Francis Orestila and her husband buy and sell trinkets for a living. Francis has three dependent children and her own home. She sells her products at the Honduran-Salvadoran border in Amatillo, where transactions are made in dollars. She will use the loan to purchase knickknacks.

Ms. Dilcia Mabel A. A. is a 29-year-old mother of three dependent children. She sells sorted used clothing, distributing it in the hamlets and neighborhoods of San Lorenzo. She will use this loan to purchase a bundle of used clothing.

These women dream of being able to provide their children with a good education, but above all, they hope that their children are successful in whatever they do.

In this group: Arlis Yaneth, Francis Orestila, Dilcia Mabel
