Duo Luchadoras De Chajones Group's story

Dúo LUCHADORAS DE CHAJONES (Chajones Fighters Duo)

This duo is made up of Gloria Florencia, 34. She’s married and has four children. She tells us that they are in school; the oldest is 9 years old. She tells us that she has had a small store at home located in the Chajones hamlet for the last two years. The idea arose because where she lives there was no store and her husband and she with much effort managed to open one but they don’t have enough capital to sell all store products; she only stocks basic things and what little she sells she reinvests.

Her husband is a merchant. He sells mattresses, reeds, plastic bathtubs, brooms, etc.) in installments so he goes to the capital twice a week to buy and he does her the favor of bringing her the products she needs because sometimes firms that sell the product don’t come to her place. However, she is asking for this loan to invest in her business purchasing soft-drinks, snacks, juice, beans, rice, etc. Since her husband hasn’t done too well with his business they want to enlarge the store to obtain better profits and support their children’s schooling.

The other member sells new and used traditional clothes and needs the loan to invest in her business.
