Antorcha Encendida De Taulabe Group's story

Mirian is 55 years old, married and has two children. She lives in the town of Taulabé, Comayagua. She has always engaged in business activities. Previously she made tortillas to sell, and six years ago started her small general store to sell basic household necessities.

She sells rice, beans, eggs, lard, sugar, bread, soft drinks, snacks, pastas, cleaning products, etc. Mirian has obtained several loans to invest in the business. Currently she is applying for her 12th group loan, so that she can stock her business with products such as rice, bread, beans, lard, soft drinks, and snacks. Her aim is to earn income and offer more products to her customers.

Her wish is to always keep her business going, so that it will generate income and allow her and her family to live a better life.

The group is called "Antorcha Encendida de Taulabé´" (The Lighted Torch of Taulabé) and consists of two members: Marian in a black blouse on the right, and on the left is Santos Yolanda. Both have small general stores and live in the same community. The group loan is for 20,000 lempiras, and they will invest it in stocking their businesses.

In this group: Mirian, Santos Yolanda
