La Cruz De Yerbateros Group's story

"People who are determined to make progress" - that is what the ten members of this Cruz D. Yerbateros group are known as. They see how to bring income into their homes through their business activities.

Such is the case of Señora Flor D. María C. who is 40 years of age, married and has two dependent children. For over seven years she has been selling ice creams in summer and "emoliente" (a traditional hot drink) in winter. Thus she makes her best effort every day so that she and her family can get on in life. In the future she would like to have a much better equipped ice-cream parlor. She will use this loan to stock up, buying products for the summer season.

Like Señora Flor D. María C., the other group members all have their own particular stories, but they all make great efforts and share the same dedication for the good of their families.

In this group: Flor De Maria , Maria Elena , Isabel , Candel , Susana , Estefani , Rosario , Nelly , Rosmari , Cesar Enrique
