Estrella De Luz Group's story

The 'Estrella de Luz' group is made up of three hard-working, entrepreneurial people. The group coordinator is 64-year-old Marlene who has been selling used clothing, snacks, ice and iced treats for approximately six years. This cheerful lady has eight children, two of whom help her in her business. She mentions that, thanks to the loans she has received, she has been able to use her profits to make improvements to her home. She would currently like to invest in setting up a food sales business which she will run on weekends.

The other members of this group are 33-year-old Zeneyda, who has run an eatery for several years, and Heyling, who set up an eatery one year ago.

In this group: Marlene, Zeneyda, Heyling
