Yurem Group's story

Three hardworking women make up the Yurem loan group. One of them is María José G. V., who is 21 years old and runs a small bakery. She learned this profession from her husband, who inherited the bakery from his parents. She considers it to be a family business and works hard to get ahead and give her son schooling, food, love, and above all a good childhood.

The other members of the group are Zulmira Maltez, who is 25 years old and has been selling clothes for some years, and Martha Lorena F. Hondoy, who works selling both new and used clothing.

In this group: María José, Martha, María
