Las Orquideas Group's story

The new “Las Orquídas” (Orchids) communal bank has nine members who are enthusiastic about starting to work with Programa-Prosperidad. They chose that name because most of the members were born in a town where said flowers are grown.

Nilda is the group President. She is 21 years old and has a spouse though no children yet. She has a home-based grocery store that arose from her wish to have a business of her own. Thanks to her hard work, Nilda has managed to reach one of her goals: to buy her own piece of land.

In order to continue improving, she asked for the loan to invest in the business buying soft-drinks, cookies, milk, noodles, etc. Nilda’s dream is to finish building her house so that she can expand her store.

The new “Las Orquídeas” communal bank is grateful for the loan provided. Nilda is the one wearing a black polo shirt.

In this group: Nilda, Claudia Janeth, Florencia, Betty Gladys, Alizonhp Smith, Monica, Hilda, Vilma Norma, Yeny
