Camino Al Exito Group's story

A group with creativity for business and determination to get ahead—this is how the “Camino al Éxito” [Path to Success] communal bank can be described. It has been made up of 7 members for more than 4 years. It is a group with a lot in common, such as the desire to overcome and an individual story for each member. Such is the case of Ruby Dolorier, who is 50 years old, married, and has 4 children, one of whom is still in high school. She works every day in sewing, work which she has been doing for more than 3 years. Through her hard work she has managed to improve her quality of life because she now has more savings. Because of this, she is about to achieve one her biggest goals, which is to finish building her house so that her children can have a place to live and grow into excellent citizens. Ruby Dolorier isn’t just a prosperous worker; she is also an excellent cook. This is why she also makes delicious foods on the weekends, so that she can make some extra income. She will use the recent loan to invest for the Christmas season (she will buy fabrics). In the future she would like to expand her business to have a workshop that is well equipped so that she can earn a better income for herself and her family.

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