Restauración Group's story

The “Restauración” (Restoration) group is comprised of three hard-working people. Liliam C., age 50, is one of them. She sells cosmetics, Arabela products, and gold and silver jewelry. She started her business in 2000; she sold food. She used the loans to invest in other businesses like cosmetics, used clothes, and jewelry. Liliam C. has four children. The two youngest, ages 17 and 16, are with her. She works arduously for them. This woman’s dream is to have a better stocked business. She will buy clothes and cosmetics with the loan. Justina R. is another member of the group. She sells milk, soft drinks, snacks, rice, sugar, and soap, etc. The other member of the group is Isable Romera. She has a small grocery store, and she will use the loan to invest in it.
