Valle Verde Group's story

The group consists of six working members, and is coordinated by 58 year old Ada who's married and works every day selling food. On weekends she increases sales with fried foods, selling it at a stand near the ENACAL water well in her community. She needs the loan to purchase foods such as a hundredweight of rice, beans, oil, beef, chicken, green plantains, bananas, ripe plantains, and has an assistant to help her on weekends. The rest of the week she's in charge of making the aforementioned product on her own. Another member is 59 year old Elba who sells Zermat cosmetics, second hand clothes and jewelry. Also there's the member Maria who has a grocery store in her home and Juana who sells beverages, corn, enchiladas and everything she's able to sell on the streets of her community as well as selling ice and cooked beans from home. Javier offers loans to low-income people to give them a hand so they can get through hard times and last but not least the member Lucia sells food from her home every day.

In this group: Ada Rosa , Maria Antonia , Juana Francisca, Elba Undena , Humberto Javier , Lucia Del Carmen
