Grupo Peñitas Group's story

The Peñitas group is made up of six hard-working women. They decided to call the group "Peñitas" because that is the name of the area in which they live.

One group member, Enriqueta, whom they have affectionately nicknamed "Doña Queta," is a widow with a working daughter. She makes her living selling clothes and shoes in the city market. She started this business about eight years ago because she needed to move forward after having been widowed.

Doña Queta wants to stock more shoes and aspires to have a larger venue so as to secure her future after she retires.

In this group: Elisa Coral , Enriqueta , Francisca , Maria De La Luz , Reyna Elizabeth, Yazmin
