Las Flores Triunfadoras Group's story

This group is called Las Flores Triunfadoras and it is made up of thirteen hardworking and humble women who have different economic activities. The members of this group are from a town called Rancho Viejo. It is a town that is rich in flora. Before arriving at this community there is a river called Rió de la Arena a large river with green trees.

ONe of the members of this group is called Verónica, who is 30 years old. She is a hardworking and humble woman who has sold store merchandise for 2 years. She tells us that what she likes the most about her business is buying her merchandise on time and keeping her store clean and giving her customers good service so they'll be happy and proud of her store and the person who is serving them.

She is happily married to Rolando, who is thirty five. He is a hardworking and humble man who supports his wife so that they two of them can give a better future to their children Rober, who is five, and Abies, who is two.

She tells us that she used to sell clothing via catalog, but at times she didn't earn anything. She told her husband that they could buy a little bit of store merchandise to sell with their savings. So they both decided it would be a good business and with help from the foundation they bought more merchandise and enlarged their grocery store.

She is going to use the loan to buy more store merchandise such as: soap, detergent, beverages, yogurt, mayonnaise, chiles, potato chips, soup, coffee, sugar, milk, bread, oil, vegetables, juices and toothpaste. She is grateful to the foundation for helping women from indigenous communities who want to get ahead.
