Ladies Group's story

The Ladies group is made up of six working women who decided to call themselves that because they consider themselves enterprising ladies.

Within the group is Patricia, who is 41 years old, and who's nickname is Paty. She is married, with 5 children (ages 21, 18, 16, 15 and 13). Four of her children work to help her with the household expenses. Among those, two work at a retail store, another in a factory and one helps her with the business. Paty started helping her mother with the sale of cleaning products in the market to help her siblings and herself get ahead. She decided to continue with the business to help her family get ahead.

Paty's dream is to increase sales so she can remodel her house and also put it into her business. Also, she wants to secure the future for her children by providing them with a professional education.

In this group: Elsa Catarina, Maria Edelmira, Maria Guadalupe, Olivia Marisol, Patricia, Vanessa*
