Flor De Otoño Group's story

Flor de Otoño [Autumn Flower]. The name describes perfectly the spirit of this lively group of women entrepreneurs who have decided to invest in their businesses in order to grow and flourish.

Bertha, one of the members, is the mother of two children. When she started the adventure of marriage she did not know the economic highs and lows that were going to follow because of the work instability that her husband would have. So then, driven by love, she began to devise alternatives that could improve the reality of their life. Thinking about the possibilities, finally she decided to buy basic groceries and start an informal sale in her house. With the passage of time and acceptance in the neighborhood, the business started to take place and shape.

This business has borne fruit for her and it has been advisable to get a loan to enrich her products during this time.

She hopes to begin the new year on the right foot.

In this group: Bertha Lidia, Eugenia, Irene Nayeli, Lorena Guadalupe, Lorena, Maria Teresa, Miriam, Rosa Elena, Santos
