Chuaxic Central 1 Group's story

Thirty-three year old Maria is married and did not have the opportunity to study. She has six children, four of whom are in education. She has a business selling ice-creams and vegetables. Having started this business with only a little money, she now has nine years experience and her business is going well. She receives support from her husband who works in agriculture.

Maria is organising a group of women that is applying for a loan to be invested in expanding their business, as well as in buying ice-creams and vegetables that will be sold on. In the future, Maria hopes to have a bigger business with higher profits.
