Las Emprendedoras Group's story

The Las Emprendedoras ("The Entrepreneurs") communal bank is in its 3rd cycle. It is made up of 16 women who engage in various activities such as selling food like cheese buns, vegetables, or sweets. Others are seamstresses, repairing clothing or making it themselves. The communal bank is made up of hard-working, entrepreneurial, and responsible women who look to satisfy their customers' demands.

One of the members, Aparicia, sells cheese buns as a street vendor. She makes them herself and sells them herself to a loyal clientele.

The loan requested will be used to buy ingredients such as starch, milk, pig fat, eggs, etc, which she needs to make the cheese buns in order to then sell them at an accessible price.

In this group: Aparicia, Lisandra, Nancy, Elida, Maria, Edita, Ursulina, Delma, Sandra, Ana, Blasida, Arminda, Carmen, Isidora, Cindia, Maria
