Solidario Mujeres Del Libano Group's story

'Mujeres del Líbano'

This group has three members. María Juliana is 42 years old, married, and has five children. She has been making and selling 'comales' (special pans used for cooking tortillas) for 15 years. She tells us that she would like this loan so that she can store 'comales' so that when the winter comes she will have enough products available to sell.

Rosa Irma is 44 years old and single. She has been selling eggs from her home and also in the stores in Sacsuy for nine years.

Rosa is 56 years old, married, and has three children. She has owned a small store in the village of Sacsuy for eight years. She tells us that she is requesting this loan so that she can invest in buying basic household products to sell.

The three ladies know each other and are friends. They are hard working and entrepreneurial. They hope to receive this opportunity from FAPE to grow and develop their businesses. They are relying on this great opportunity and hope that they will not let down the institution that will lend them this support.

In this group: Rosa, Rosa Irma, Maria Julia
