Fuente De Sabiduría Group's story

Ms. Silvia Patricia H. L. is a married woman. She is an artisan who concentrates on making plastic baskets. With the goal of increasing her working capital, she decided to request a group loan. Her group [the "Fuente de Sabiduría, or "Fountain of Wisdom" Group] is made up of five members who are looking to succeed. All of them have been working for many years. In particular, some work as artisans making plastic baskets, for which they use long-lasting materials like plastic thread and plastic tape. This benefits those who buy the baskets because they do not have to buy plastic bags all the time, and at the same time it contributes to the environment by not further deteriorating our planet.

The other members of this group work raising animals like chickens and pigs. Others work in agriculture, planting corn and beans. In order to increase their working capital and improve their quality of life, they are requesting a loan from the Integral Rural Development Association (ASDIR).

In this group: Silvia Patricia, Erika , Apolonio Alejandro , Maria Elena , Santos Hilario
