Las Estrellitas Group's story

Sra. Francisca is 38 years old and married. She did not have the opportunity to study. Francisca has six children, two of whom are in school. She is a merchant who sells ice cream. Francisca started this business at a time of financial necessity and because she needed money to support her family. Now she has been in business for six years. She has the support of her husband, who is also a merchant.

Francisca decided to organize a group so that she could request a loan to increase her operating capital for selling ice cream. She plans to buy fruit, flavorings, milk, and other necessary supplies for making ice cream in different sizes and flavors. The other members of the group raise animals and have retail businesses.

In this group: Natalia Abac, Maria Antonieta, Francisca, Berta Yolanda, Margarita, Francisca, Marcelina, Rosa Paulina, Irma Yolanda, Narcisa, Karla Elizabeth, Maria, Virginia, Juana Margarita
