El Madroño Group's story

This solidarity group is made up of four members, all successful in their working life. It is coordinated by Señora María del Socorro. She is 62 years old and married.

She works selling fruit. She began this business thirty years ago when she bought the house where she lives. It is a small farm that provides her with fruit. Being as she is a hardworking woman, she decided to sell them. When she saw that it was a line of work that generated good earnings, she was inclined to keep selling them. These days she sells fruits and vegetables in the capital. This business allowed her to give her family education, healthcare, and food.

She is asking for a loan to buy oranges, Seville oranges, and yuca. With this investment, she will get better earnings and can keep improving her quality of life.

The other members are María Neli, age 51, who sells fruits and vegetables in different areas of the capital, María Emelanea, age 48, who sells vegetables, and Teodora, age 61, who sells fruits in the capital.

In this group: Maria Del Socorro, Maria Emelanea, Maria Neli , Teodora Francisca
