Damas De Hierro Group's story

The group "Damas de Hierro" [Iron Ladies] is from the city of San Lorenzo. There, its eleven members struggle to grow and work together in order to help their families through their job. Mrs. María del Carmen is a good saleswoman, and that is why she is successful in her business. She sells clothes and women’s underwear. She has been able to overcome many challenges with effort and her team’s support. Her dream is to continue growing with this group and to be able to continue helping her family, since they really need this help. She is requesting this loan to buy garments and lingerie to sell, since the upcoming season is good for sales and she wants to be prepared, with a good assortment to offer to her customers.
