Juana De Arco Group's story

Decisiveness, initiative, and good business plans are the traits that characterize the group of members known as "Juana de Arco" (Joan of Arc). This group consists of eight members who have been together for two years. All of them know each other very well since they are neighbors. It should be mentioned that the initiative they exhibit each day has resulted in success in their businesses.

One of the members is Sra. Yolanda. She is 36 years old, married, and has two children, one of whom is in high school. Yolanda wakes up very early every morning in order to sell cakes and pastries as her daily business. Generating income from her sales gives her great satisfaction since it has allowed her to buy furniture for her home and pay for her child's studies. In the future, she would like to build a house. With this current loan, Yolanda will buy accessories for cake decoration.

This description cannot be concluded without mentioning the actions and enthusiasm that each member demonstrates in order to reach their common goal, which is to provide financial stability for their families and to achieve progress in their businesses.

In this group: Yolanda, Ana Lidia, Yudit Liliana, Rocio Liz, Celia, Paulina, Maria Rosa, Lorudes
