Lomas Del Sur Group's story

The Loma del Sur group is composed of 3 hard-working women. One of them is Alma A.. She is 37 years old and she has made tortillas, beans and sour milk for five years. She started, “like everyone else”, she says in between laughs, “with a wish to make progress and little resources.” Thanks to the loans, things have improved. She has 3 children; they are 17, 13 and 9. The three of them are in school and after classes , they help look after the business.
One of the other members of the group is 28 year old Maritza García. She has a mini-mart which she started by just selling soft drinks and snacks. The other is Lidia Mesa. She has sold clothing for three years. They will use the loan to invest in their businesses with the goal of making progress.

In this group: Alma, Lidia, Maritza
