Chocaman Group's story

Mrs. Santiaga, 52, is married and sells all kinds and sizes of clothing. She was unable to get an education, and set up her street vendor activity 20 years ago. She decided to organize a group to apply for loans which she will use to buy new clothing merchandise such as scarves, stockings, sweaters, and caps, among other types of clothing. The other members of the group are in commerce and domestic animal farming. In the future they would like to establish their businesses in shopping areas.

In this group: Santiaga, Carmelita, Maria Magdalena, Obispo, Jose Nicolas, Martina, Hugo
