El Algodonal Florece Group's story

Marina has a sales position the market of los Olivos. There she has her business of selling beauty supplies and clothing; a business that has prospered much with time. When she started it not long ago, she only sold beauty products. She is the founder of the group called "EL ALGODONAL FLORECE" ("THE COTTON PLANTATION FLOURISHES") and is thankful because assembling the group helped her to progress and to improve her quality of life as well as help her children in their studies. What she most desires is to continue doing this until they become professionals. During all this time she has learned to invest in her business. It is because of this that she has now managed to grow and to have a well supplied business. In addition, each week she travels in the country carrying her products such as sweaters, coats and pants. Señora Maria wants to continue progressing and to have more stores. On this occasion she will invest her loan in the purchase of winter clothes, taking advantage of the fact that the season of cold approaches. She is the treasurer of the group "EL ALGODONAL FLORECE" . Maria is the last one on the right in the photo. She appears with a white seater with diamonds on it.
