Gs Mujeres De Fe Group's story

Señora Emelida is a very enterprising woman, who is dedicated to her 3-year-old business selling groceries. It is located in her home, and her customers are mainly people living in the area. She gets up very early to attend to her business, and also sells creole hens' eggs, curd cheese, corn and beans. She is very popular because she sells such varied items.

Emelida is requesting 3,000.00 lempiras to buy corn, beans, sugar, milk and bread to stock her business and give it a boost. Her dream is to to able to buy a refrigerator, because there are products she would like to sell but that need to be kept cold so that they don't go off. She is requesting the loan as part of the following group of people:

Delmy, who has made a living selling silver, clothing and shoes for three years. Nely, who has made a living selling sausage rolls for one year. Santos, who has made a living selling doughnuts for one year. Elea, who has made a living selling tortillas for 16 years.

None of them have enough capital for their businesses and have come together to show that there is strength in unity.
