San Francisco S. B. Group's story

Rosa is 25 years old, married, and has a son. She lives in the municipality of Azacualpa, Santa Barbara with her family. She has always had a business; previously she sold clothing merchandise, and three years ago started making homemade bread.

She makes sweet rolls, quesadillas, milk cakes, cookies and other baked goods. She sells this product in the community, and it has been a profitable business. In the future, she hopes to succeed in having a bakery.

Currently she is requesting a second loan from ODEF, as part of a group loan. The group is called "San Francisco" and is made up of three members. Rosa is seen in the photo, on the right, wearing an apron. On the left is Juana, in a white blouse, and Maria in a blouse with red and white stripes. The three of them make bread and live in the same community.

The group loan is for 25,000 lempiras, and they're going to use it to buy ingredients such as flour, lard, sugar, eggs, milk, yeast, margarine and vanilla, with the aim of increasing their output and earnings.

In this group: Rosa Delia, Juana Antonia, Maria Del Carmen
