A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy ingredients to make tamales.

Solidario Las Sumpangueras Group's story

The Sumpangueras

The members of the group live approximately 32 kilometers from the city. Narcisa is the representative of this group. She is a very hard-working woman, and she has given her daughters the example of working arduously. All of them sell tamales on the week-end.

Narcisa says that on Saturdays she prepares approximately 500 tamales. Maria Tomasa and Loreza Estela, also members of the group, sell the tamales at the market.

The three of them have worked with Fape for a long time, and they are very dependable. They are now requesting another loan because the Christmas fiestas are approaching. They need to buy ingredients to make the tamales. The orders have increased for this season. They want to take advantage of the demand in order to be able to improve their children’s lives.

In this group: Maria Tomasa, Maria Narcisa, Lorenza Estela
