Las Palmyx Group's story

This group is called “Palmix” and it has 13 members, all hardworking, humble women who are good mothers because they work to provide the best for their children. They decided to name it Palmix because the place where the meet is full of flowering palm trees.

One of the group members is Maribel Elvia who sells second-hand clothes and footwear. Maribel tells us that she’s been in this business for four years and what she most enjoys is selling footwear because that’s what produces the highest profits and her customers enjoy the treatment she gives them and the quality of her merchandise.

Maribel is happily married to Alfonso Joel with whom she has two children: Jenifer and Juan Luis who help her with the business since they take care of customers when the visit her house to buy clothes. One of Maribel’s dreams is to enlarge the business and have a locale where she can display her merchandise. She asked for the loan to buy clothes and footwear to sell. Maribel says that she’d very much like to sell Mary Kay perfumes.
