Las Comadres Group's story

This group is called “Las Comadres.” The members decided on this name because most of them are comadres [have baptized each other’s children]; they like each other and are like family all of them together. The group has 11 hardworking women and one hardworking, honest man who is compadre to all of them. The group representative is Librada Minerva, better known as Doña Mine, the blended drinks lady. Her fellow members call her that because she makes Herbalife blended drinks for health.

Doña Mine is noted for being a hardworking woman who likes to go out and tear down all barriers and reach her dreams; to have a united family and to help her fellow group members so that everything is OK.

Doña Mine has a locale where she sells Herbalife products like teas, blended drinks and water. She tells us that she enjoys her work very much because she earns good profits and also helps people by selling them natural products.

Doña Mine is happily married to Javier who is in the United States but thanks to God and to the Fundación Mine has her locale and more products so that her husband can return and they can work together. She requested the loan to buy more Herbalife products to sell and earn higher profits.
