Las Poderosas Group's story

The contact who started the present committee was Señora Francisca, who invited and organized her friends to form part of the Enterprising Women Committee program. They pleasantly accepted, since they saw a great opportunity for progress in the program.
Señora Franciscsa is the president of the group. She is dedicated to the sale of clothes in general for ladies, children and gentlemen. She married Señor Anastacio 22 years ago. He is a tailor. They have five sons who are students, four of legal age and one younger in grade school. She tells us that their dream is to be able to have a large business where they can offer the garments that she sells. She requests the loan to purchase garments for ladies, gentlemen and children, with which she will be able to be supplied and to have more variety to offer her clients.
