Harth De Parquer Group's story

Blanca is a member of the group Harth de Parquer. Her credit partners invited her to form part of the group with the intent to encourage her to invest in what, little by little, was becoming her business. She began to make food sporadically, based on recommendations, for special events, like birthdays and anniversaries, among others. Then she solicited support from her neighbors, asking them for pots and vessels to be able to meet the requests. These same neighbors motivated her so that she was encouraged to invest in pots and vessels so that she would see them as instruments for her job that she uses more frequently each time.

These tips, and the analysis of the increase in her business, led her to make the decision to invest and to be part of this group and with it to grow what she now calls her own business.

In this group: Blanca Erika, Brenda Joselyn, Celia, Emilia Del Carmen*, Luz Andrea, Maria Ana, Maria De Jesus, Maribel, Marina Elizabeth, Tania Yesenia
