Virgen De Caacupe Group's story

It was Sra. Maria who started this group when she invited and organized her friends to become part of the Foundation’s Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras. She saw that it would help each of them very much, not only economically but also personally.

Sra. Maria has lived with her partner Sr. Salín for eight years. He sells candy. They have two young children. Maria sells all types of clothing, a job that brings in much needed money to pay for household expenses. Her goal is to have her own stall in the Luque market one day and sell clothing there. This would bring in more money for the family and pay for basic needs.

Maria is seeking a loan to buy a greater variety of clothing so that she can attract more customers.

In this group: Maria Isabel, Angelina, Digna, Eulogia, Silvia, Maria, Gladis, Maria, Lilian, Sandra, Maria, Florentina, Patricia, Tania, Angelica*
