Las Pioneras Group's story

The members of the Las Pioneras group are responsible and active people. The group is comprised of seven women who look to rise up each day. This is the case with Maribel. She is married and has two minor children. At her 35 years of age, Maribel is happy to have fulfilled some of her dreams. An example of this is that she has improved her house.

She currently has a store, and she has been working this way for over three years. In spite of the competition, Maribel has managed to get loyal customers. This makes her happy. She will use the new loan to buy groceries and candy to stock her store. Her biggest desire is to carry on with her store.

The Las Pioneras group is grateful to the people who made this loan possible. Maribel is the first one on the left, and she is wearing a red jacket.

In this group: Deysi Flor, Jacinta, Maria, Albina, Maribel, Marilyn Ibeth, Liliana Margarita*
