Responsabilidad Group's story

María has been selling clothing for six years in a stall in the market in her area. Her business is called "Cynthia". She began this business helping her sister-in-law, but in time decided to continue alone with her own store. She offers her customers all types of clothes like shirts, sweaters, pants, blouses, and dresses. She also lets her customers buy items on credit. Thanks to her work, she has been able to help her husband with the construction of their house, which will give safety and comfort to their children and help with their studies.

In the future, she would like to move the business to her own house and also begin a business selling sweets, because she also sometimes prepares cakes, snacks, and all kinds of sweets.

With this loan, she will purchase clothing for the Christmas season, when she has many sales. Like her eight partners, she is a member of the group "Responsabilidad" [Responsibility], where she holds the office of secretary.

One group member is pictured in the small photo in the top right hand corner because he was not present when the original group photo was taken.
