Las Bomberas Group's story

This group is called "Las Bomberas" (the firefighters) because its chairwoman lives in Bomberos Street. Jhajaira Isabel is the group's secretary. She is 21 years old, married, has a 4-year-old daughter and another on the way. She buys her merchandise, which is new clothing, downtown and sells it from her home to the people of her neighborhood. She sells clothes for men, women and children. She has been in this business for 3 years to help with household expenses. She wants to use her earnings to furnish her home, and her dream is to some day buy a car to run her business more easily.

In this group: Elida*, Ma Elena, Maria Esther, Maria Teresa, Jhajaira Isabel, Rosa Silvia, Silvia
