Los Girasoles Group's story

Patricia is married, 47 years old, and works selling beauty products in the Salcajá market every day. She has been in sales for 16 years, and this has been a source of income for her. She needs capital to buy merchandise, and being that she is a leader, she joined with eleven other women to apply for a loan from ASDIR. They formed a communal bank called "Los Girasoles" [The Sunflowers]. The majority of these women have traveling businesses, and like Patricia, they dream of establishing stores of their own to expand their businesses and improve their incomes.
