Las Divinas De La Union Group's story

The communal bank Las Divinas de la Unión is made up of several enterprising, hardworking and united women. The group consists of 8 people, men and women who excel, each with their own story. One of them in particular is Señora Maribel who is 41 years of age and single. From a young age she lived surrounded by living examples of courage which encouraged her to start a business selling food (regional dishes). Now with 15 years in the business, she has been able to provide her small son with the best. Having started out with the business at her front door, little by little she was able to improve the business and now sells shaved ice drinks and sweets. With grand dreams and goals to meet, she is thinking of opening a locale to sell food. She will invest her recent loan in buying more ingredients and having what it takes to succeed for the well-being of her family.

In this group: Maribel, Virginia Angelica, Miguel Angel, Lourdes Evarista, Juan Diego, Anamelba, Emma Lucy, Saby Liseth
