Mi Banquito Group's story

Mi Banquito Group (my little bank) is made up of five hard-working and enterprising people. One of them is María Luisa who has owned a grocery store for the past four years. In the beginning she sold used clothing and gradually she added other products to her inventory. Her three children (aged 12, 10 and 7) help her in the business.

The other members of the group are:

  • Concepción is a street vendor who sells clothes, cosmetics and sandals,

  • Vilma sells ice, tamales and ice cream,

  • Rosa has a grocery store, and

  • María Auxiliadora sells bed linen for children and adults, etc.

In this group: Maria Luisa, Maria Auxiliadora, Rosa Emilia, Engracia De La Concepcion, Vilma Esther
