Existosas Group's story

The communal bank group "EXITOSAS" is composed of 9 members, all women. The President of this group is Hortensia, who has three children ages 7, 5 and 3 years of age. Hortensia works selling food, but does not have a fixed stand from which she sells. She delivers her food to different posts in the market, where others help her sell directly to consumers.

Hortensia is a very hardworking person, who through much dedication has been improving her stability and solvency. Additionally, the popularity of her food has been growing and she is now very well known and liked by her clients. With the money that she makes she will continue to grow her business, always investing in order to improve the well-being of her family. Hortensia's dream is to have her own fixed market stand one day, which would enable her to grow her business and improve her earnings.

In this group: Lucy, Hortensia, Marlen Jannine, Hirene, Celida, Kinverlin, Lorena, Virginia, Patricia Andr
