Camino Al Exito Group's story

Sra. Carmen Rosa is 50 years old and serves as president of the committee named “Camino al Éxito” (Road to Success). She joined this group three years ago and now there are seven members. They are all united in their goal of generating more income to maintain their families. Carmen Rosa is married and has three children, one daughter is independent and the other two are still dependent on her and her husband. She has a business making items out of craft foam. Carmen started this business six years ago and has implemented new techniques over time as a result of courses she has taken and magazines she has read. Due to their efforts, Carmen and her husband have been able to pay their household expenses. In the future, she hopes to open either a small store or a craft workshop. With this latest loan, Carmen plans to buy materials and equipment.

In this group: Carmen Rosa, Maria Mercedes, Rosa Petronila, Ruby, Maria Teresa, Patricia Carmen, Orfelinda
