Las Reynas Group's story

A peculiar name for a group is "Las Reynas" (The Queens). They are enterprising neighbors who have given themselves this label to cheer each other on to get ahead.

Rosa Isela, one of the neighbors of the communal bank, approached the group and learned about the commitment and benefits it represented for each of its members. She sells snacks from her home and, with the idea of growing her business through investment, she asked "Las Reynas" to be included when the group planned to renew.

Rosy, as they call her, is convinced that she can introduce variety and merchandise into her business so her customer base grows daily.

In this group: Bertha Alicia, Irma, Karla Gabriela, Maria Esther, Rosa Isela, Sonia
