Emprendedoras Del Valle El Triunfo Group's story

"Emprendedoras del Valle Triunfo" ["Entrepreneurs of the Triunfo Valley"] is the name this group of hard-working and optimistic women has given to their own businesses which are a source of income for them and their families. This group was formed two years ago with many good business expectations. It is made up of eight members, all of whom have their own story.

This is the case with Señora Gumercinda, aged 41, who is the mother of three grown children. For more than 18 years, she has been working everyday selling a preparation of natural products. This has earned her profits to cover her household expenses. At the same time, she also works in the evenings selling food. She is planning on investing the new loan in purchasing merchandise for her business.

As with Señora Gumercinda, each member of the group has their own story, but they all share in the desire and the efforts to always move ahead in life for the well-being of themselves and their families.

In this group: Gumercinda Dolores, Yolanda, Lucia, Edia Irene, Juana, Guisela, Vilma, Irma Justina
