A loan of $900 helped a member to invest in the purchase of carnation plants to plant in the greenhouse that they have.


Claveles Group's story

Claveles is a supportive group made up of three enterprising and very hard-working women who are looking for a way to come out ahead and to achieve each one of their dreams through work, sacrifice, and daily effort. The president of this supportive group is Veronica, a courageous woman full of virtues and high Christian values. She is a 24-year-old woman who has three children. She lives with her husband and children in the city of Latacunga. Veronica defines herself as a humble, honest, very hard-working, and enthusiastic woman. It is because of this that she has gained the regard and recognition of her community. The loan requested from FODEMI will be invested in the purchase of carnation plants to plant in the greenhouse that they have. This is a worthwhile investment since it produces a large harvest and their carnations are highly valued in the entire center of the country. The dream that Veronica has is to continue working and increase her small micro-company by having more greenhouses and planting roses and carnations, and to be one of the principle distributors of roses for her city and the country.
