Abriendo Caminos Group's story

The businesses of the members are mainly: market sales, selling tires, sewing, high-end tailoring. selling rope and operating a mechanic's shop.

Sofia has a small undertaking, in the form of a cleaning business. She has been in business for two years after having spent ten years working for a cleaning company. With a lot of effort she has bought second-hand machines for her business.

Sofia notes that she has not had any major difficulties and that she needs the money to buy materials like carpet cleaner, rollers, paint stripper, wax remover, industrial wax and floor cleaner. She is very pleased and excited to get the money because she knows it will help her business. What she likes most about working with Fondo Esperanza is being able to find the support and help necessary for the businesses of Fondo Esperanza members..
