Vianka Group's story

This group is made up of three enterprising partners. One of them is Vianka, a 31-year-old single mother of two children, ages 6 and 12. Her business is making and selling tortillas, and she also has a small variety store where she sells clothes, cosmetics, and men's and women's shoes. She has been the owner of this business for five years.

She has been a client of the institution for three years, because she is very punctual with her payments. She will use the loan to buy raw materials to make tortillas, such as corn, lime, and firewood. With the last loan she was able to replace the roof of her house with the profits from the business.

Flor is 28 years old and sells silver jewelry, sandals, and new and used clothes. Alba is 35 years old and sells food, clothes, and shoes.

In this group: Vianka Lucia, Alba Carolina, Flor De Maria
