Gs Flor De Cafe Group's story

Doña Victoria is an entrepreneur and hard-working woman who sells groceries in her house. She has been in the business for 6 years and works everyday from early morning to serve her customers, mainly neighbors of the community and people who work in the coffee plantations of the area. She also sells junket, which gives her some extra income.

She used her previous loan to stock the business and was able to increase her income and improve the quality of life of her family. Victoria is now requesting a new loan to buy groceries and increase her revenues. She will use the loan to buy butter, sodas, sugar, corn flour, white rice, "churros", milk, cheese, mills, soap, coffee and machetes, among other items.

She is requesting the loan jointly with the following women:
- María, whose main income source is her grocery business. She has been selling groceries for 3 years.
- Mónica, whose main income source is her grocery business too. She has been selling groceries for 20 years.
- Rosa, whose main income source is her clothing business. She has been selling new clothes for 2 years.

Given that these four women do not have enough capital to stock their businesses, they have decided to request the loan as a group. This will allow them to get ahead with their families.
