Sol Group's story

The group “Solidario Sol” is made up of two ladies who perform different economic activities in the city of Juticalpa. Nora Patricia is the group’s coordinator and she sells silver accessories for women. She’s 28 years old, married, and has a four year old baby.

Five years ago Nora followed the example of one of her neighbors and decided to sell cosmetics via catalog. Later, after a few years, she decided to focus on selling accessories instead. Her business does not have a name because she sells on foot and occasionally from her home whenever her friends and neighbors go to look for her. Nora’s biggest challenge is the climate, as the temperature during these months is very hot. Another challenge comes from when Nora grants credit because sometimes they take a long time to pay. Nora needs this loan to buy supplies to make some designs and accessories and also to buy some of the latest styles. With the help of this loan she will be able to stock her business with more and a greater variety of products to satisfy her customers’ different needs and therefore increase her income.
