Aracelys' Group's story

Aracelys is a thirty-year old mother of two children who is fighting tooth and nail to make a living and improve her family’s living conditions. Her husband lives outsiD. the country and sends her money occasionally. Aracelys is an experienced businesswoman. She used to run a cafeteria in the past, but she had to leave that activity for a while as it was hard to have access to capital in order to keep operating the cafeteria. She says it was like fighting a losing battle.

Now, the entrepreneur wants to start over, but seriously. Together with four other women, she’ll take a loan which she’ll invest in the purchase of a variety of materials in order to operate the cafeteria. Aracelys had already rented a small locale where the café will be operated. She hopes that this new beginning will help her support her children's educations and to change her family’s life.

The others members of the group are: Gloria L. S., a women’s clothing retailer; Juliana A., to buy clothing in bulk to retail; Santa D. L. C., for a small café; Regina T. F., to sell materials for a beauty parlor.
