Mujeres Buscando Un Futuro Group's story

Hortensia is the president of the "Mujeres Buscando un Futuro" ["Women Seeking a Future"] group, which has nine members. Hortensia is married and one of her four children is also a member of the group.

Hortensia's business is selling beauty products. Having time to be independent is what she most appreciates about her job. It allows her time to dedicate herself to other things. Her daughter is about to give birth and what Hortensia most wants is to take care of her grandchild while her daughter works. However, she also wants to be able to continue with her own business because it provides an additional help to the family.

She wins clients by going house to house offering a variety of products, such as perfumes, makeup, powders, creams, etc. With income from her business, Hortensia is able to cover the costs of her customers' orders. This makes it easier for her customers to pay and it also improves her earnings. She will use this loan to stock up with more products, especially perfumes and makeup, since those are what she sells the most of these days.

In this group: Maria Petronila, Consuelo, Hortencia, Alexander, Ema Antonia, Cinthya Vanessa, Cadith*, Nori, Cecilia
