Gatitas Group's story

Gatitias is a unified group that is small, but punctual with its repayments. Manuela is one of its members. She is a hardworking and noble woman, 56 years old, who is single and has a 35-year-old married daughter. Manuela works selling breaded, stuffed chicken. It all began when one of her nieces urged her to start her own business, and taught her to filet and stuff the chicken. She started off selling 5 kg, then 8 and now she sells 18 kg per week. With the loan she will buy more chicken breasts because it costs a lot to order them, as well as buying cheese, ham and other items for the preparation of her product. Her dream is to be able to sell more every day and to be able to begin home delivery of dishes.
