Las Abejitas - Chupaca Group's story

Rosario Estela S. N., member of the “Las Abejitas-Chupaca” (The Little Bees-Chupaca) group.

Rosario lives with her husband (unmarried) and their two children who are 9 and 3 years of age. She was orphaned at the age of 15 and had two younger brothers, 10 and 8, in her care. They are now adults. To support them she started working as a fare taker on public transportation. She started to save up and also met her husband who also helped her since he worked as a minivan driver. Both of them worked until they were able to buy their own car which is now their main source of income.

The help she gave her brothers was never forgotten, however, and she still helps them with their work. Her two younger brothers also have their own cars that they have put into taxi service.

Rosario’s dream is to be able to buy herself a minivan to have more income and continue building her house.

She will use the loan to service her car and buy tires.
