Las Flores De El Llano Group's story

The group named Las Flores de El Llano is made up of five hardworking and modest women who want to make their businesses grow. The members of this group are from a small town named Llano Grande, where the majority are modest and good people who want to grow. In Llano Grande La Banda you can see the children play in the streets and go to the field to fly their kites. One of the traditions in Llano Grande is the All Saints festival at which the traditional dance of the tortoise is danced in the streets. The men dress as women and as a tortoise who dances with them. One of the members of this group is Olivia, 48. She has worked selling chicken for four years. Olivia, better known as Mari, tells us that what she likes most about her business is lovingly plucking her chickens and serving her customers well. She is very happy because her business gives her good profits, and so she is able to improve her quality of life. She is happily married to Nereo José, 49, with whom she has five children, Juan, José, Adelina, Rubén, and Antonio. Mari requested the loan to buy more chickens to sell cut into pieces and alive. Mari tells us she is very happy about the support from the foundation and the confidence it has given her to improve her life and continue with her business. The other members of the group are Irma, who sells meat; Micaelina, who sells meat; Bertina, who sells notions; and Maribel, who sells chickens. They thank the foundation for helping them improve their businesses.
