Orquideas Group's story

The group “Orquídeas” is composed of three admirable persons that get ahead in life thanks to their entrepreneurial spirit and the love they feel for their families. Its members are respected by their community because they are seen as role models.

The group’s president is Mrs. Wilma, a kind, joyful, enterprising and hardworking woman. Wilma is married and has two small children that she adores. Wilma started raising livestock (pigs in particular) as a way of helping with the household economy. It is a demanding business but also a profitable one and it allows her to help at home and take care of her children.

Wilma is requesting a loan at FODEMI to invest in buying more white pigs to raise and sell. With this investment, Wilma will have more animals to sell and will improve her family’s income.

Wilma’s dream is to see her children grow to be persons of good character. She would also like to build her house in the new piece of land, keep her animals and take better care of them.

In this group: Wilma, Jose, Ernestina
