Las Solteras Group's story

"Las Solteras" (The Single Ladies) is a group made up of six women who have many things in common. They are hard-working, friendly and single: that is why they decided to give the group this name. It is located in the community of Caxapa, where one of the main activities is collecting resins from hule trees.

The members of this group are: Nuria (nutrition club), María Francisca (snack food sales), Blanca Lidia (soft drink sales), Magdalena (clothing sales), Brenda (grocery sales), and Susana (snack food sales).

Brenda is 25, went to high school, and is single. She says that three years ago she opened a small grocery store, as since leaving school, she had looked for work, but did not find it. She thought about opening a small store, where she could earn her own money without leaving the house, and this way be able to help with the household expenses.

She started off selling soft drinks and candy. Little by little she began to stock groceries, and over time her business has progressed. She says that she always gives her customers good service, as this ensures that that they shop there again.

A Vision Fund loan will give Brenda the opportunity to buy cookies, eggs, cooking oil, salt, sugar, rice, beans, coffee, spices, candy, toilet paper, safety razors, napkins, soft drinks, flavorings and canned goods for restocking her store.

She intends to continue investing her earnings in her business, as she wants to see it grow further and to see her sales increase.

In this group: Nuria , María Francisca, Blanca Lidia , Magdalena , Brenda , Susana
