Bertha Calderon Group's story

The Bertha Calderón group consists of three hardworking and enterprising women. One of them is Karla Elizabeth, who works selling beans, soda, ice, clothing, and cosmetics, a little bit of everything. She will invest the loan in clothing. Her goal is to install a small grocery store.

She has three children, ages 18, 16, and 7. The older ones help her in the business in their spare time, as does her husband.

The other members are Mariela de los Ángeles, who has sold snacks and sodas for four years, and Carolina, who sells beans and corn.

In this group: Karla, Mariela, Carolina Nubia
