Los Cedrales Group's story

The "Los Cedrales" group is participating in the Survey for Poverty Elimination, where 3 of the women are below the poverty line (in other words, they have insufficient income). These women, in particular, are giving their all so they can grow. Maria is one of these women. By selling cosmetics, she wants to overcome poverty and give her family all that they need to have a life without wants. She defines herself as being very good at selling and it is for this reason that she has many customers. She is asking for this loan to be able to buy name-brand cosmetics. By so doing, she will have a good variety that will impress her customers. She is grateful for this opportunity that her and her family are receiving.

In this group: Norma, Ramona, Maria, Hermelinda, Esmelda, Claudia, Ninfa, Liz, Amada, Victoria, Etelvina, Gloria, Graciela, Lorena, Gladiz, Fermina*
