Ciudad Real Group's story

Ciudad Real (Royal City) is the name of this group of women who fight for and are optimistic about their businesses. These businesses are a source of income for the women and their families. This group formed six years ago and has high expectations for the businesses. It is made up of seven members, each with their own history, as is the case with Fany. Fany is 33-years-old and lives with her two children who are still in school. She works every day selling breakfasts in a market stall. This has generated profits that support the household expenses. With her recent loan, she is planning to invest in merchandise for her business. Like Fany, each group member has her own story, but all have the same hope and effort to always move forward for their well-being and that of their families.

In this group: Fany, Modesta, Rufino Ledgardo, Liz Elizabeth, Clara Lucila, Julian Cipriano, Margarita Timotea*
