Santo Domingo Group's story

Manuela is married, is 45 years old, and has completed three years of primary education. She has two children who are in school. She sells bread and tamales, a business that she started with a little capital that she had. She has nine years of experience with this business, and she has benefitted from the support of her husband, who works in agriculture.

She organized a group to request a loan that she will use to buy bread to sell and corn with which to make tamales. She hopes to continue increasing her sales and her earnings. The rest of the members of the group work in businesses, selling cosmetics, tamales and bread, and corn, as well as work at a store more generally.

In this group: Manuela, Luz Maria, Miriam Araceli , Aparicia, Maura, Venancia
