Microempresarios Emprendedores Group's story

Greetings! This is the group "Microempresarios Emprendedores" (Enterprising Micro-entrepreneurs). It is made up of six members who, as time goes by, have been improving their businesses with the goal of giving their families a better quality of life.

Flora is separated with five independent children. At 66 years of age, Flora has managed to achieve some of her goals, such as improving her home and helping her children with their education. She currently makes a living by selling papa rellena (deep-fried stuffed potatoes), Jell-O, and soft drinks. Her business is mobile and she has had it for more than three years. She is requesting this loan so she can invest in her business by buying sugar, gelatin, fruit, and oil. To set up a kiosk where she can sell her products is her greatest wish.

The group "Microempresarios Emprendedores" thanks the people who made this loan possible. Flora is the first from the right. She is wearing a black sweater and a white polo shirt.

In this group: Luis Alberto, Victoria Elena, Flora, Jose Antonio, Elery Javier, Maria F
