Vencedoras Del Pinar Group's story

Rosa Elvira, who is 60, is a single and childless. She is a member of the recently formed group "Vencedoras del Pinar". There are seven members, each of whom runs a small business. Rosa Elvira has been selling natural products for over 8 years and this has enabled her to achieve financial independence, organise her time and achieve what most of us would like to do: be her own boss. She very much enjoys her work because it enables her to meet people and increase her clientele. She will use the loan to buy natural products and, by buying them in larger quantities, will get a better price and thereby increase her profit margin.

In this group: Sandra, Justino Andres, Marco Antonio, Estrella Luzmila, Rosa Elvira, Jessenia Albertina, Karen Giovanna
