El Atardecer Group's story

The group's name is "El Atardecer" (the sunset), the members of the group decided to name it this way because it was taking them so long to think of a group name that it started to get late.

Maria de los Angeles is 36 and has been married to Alberto for 20 years, they have five children, four girls and one boy, they all live in the same home.

Maria de los Angeles has a PET recycling business, she's been in this business for a month, prior to it she used to sell clothes, where she didn't make enough profit so she hopes this new business has more success; Maria de los Angeles requested a loan to invest in the business because she faces challenges such as the shortage of PET such as drink bottles, cardboard, newspaper and paper, she indicates that with the loan she won't have any problems to purchase material and she is hoping to support her children so that they keep studying and support the community to reduce pollution.

The other members of the group will purchase things like: Adela L. will invest it in clothing such as pants, blouses, shirts and jackets; Maria Remedios will buy sheep to increase her inventory, while Maria Ines T. will invest it in her grocery store to buy oil, soap, rice, beans, coffee, shampoo, toothpsate and salt; Maria del Carmen will buy sheep as well and finally Graciela L. will buy chicken to start a new business.

The whole group hopes to expand their respective business to have a better quality of life, thanking Frac and Kiva for their help.
