Rositas Del Ocho Group's story

This group is called “Rositas del Ocho” (The Little Roses of the Eight). The members chose this name because these ladies are from neighborhood #8 and enjoy Damask roses (otherwise known as roses of Castille). Most of the residents raise sheep. This group consists of eleven members.


Elizabeth López S. is one of the members of this group. She is 27 years old and completed her education through the preparatory level. Elizabeth is a housewife and merchant and says that her business is fundamental to her ability to move forward and contribute to her family’s expenses. She has two sons. Sra. Elizabeth sells roasted pork tacos at the flea market every Monday. She has been in this business for eight years. Her dedication has resulted in her customers choosing her because of the good service she provides. This loan will help her buy feed for the pigs that she raises, as well as condiments she uses for preparing pork tacos. She dreams of someday having a larger establishment so that she can satisfy the demand for her product.
