Solidario Las Esmeraldas Group's story

Solidario las Esmeraldas is composed of Ángela Daniela who is 21 years old, Vera Judith who is 27 and Eva Judith who is 47. Ángela, the leader of the group, makes a living selling cosmetics, and now also bread, out of her home. Every day is the same routine. Of course, she does it to secure the lives of her future children. She sells in her shop every day. She stays open all day but there are many times that she also leaves to sell her products through catalogues in order to have a greater income, knocking on doors and seeks out acquaintances. She is asking for this loan to buy bread for her bakery. As for Vera Judith, she continues with her sale of the gifts and piñatas that she makes. She assures that the previous loan has been helpful and she does not doubt that this one will help her even more. Eva also continues with her bookstore. Every day, starting very early, she serves her clients and tries to maintain variety so that they visit often. The three women have seen change in their lives and now want to refinance and thereby increase their profits.
