Santa Elena Group's story

The “Santa Elena” committee has 11 members that are in a variety of commercial activities ranging from the sale of food to the sale of flowers. The women in the committee are noted for being united, mutually supportive and above all for being enterprising since they all need to increase their income to contribute to their families’ support.

Ovilia works with ceramics and thanks to her imagination and talent has been able to get ahead. She requests the loan to maintain her workshop and also to buy products needed like paint and brushes, for example.

In this group: Ovilia, Teresa, Angela, Laura, Olga, Andrea, Olga, Maria, Rumilda, Dominga, Clara*
